- Using Events in Highly Distributed Architectures -
"The event-driven pattern shifts much of the responsibility of controlling flow away from the event source (or sender system), and distributes/delegates it to event receivers. Event source systems do not need to explicitly define the scope of distributed transactions and manage them, or connected systems are less dependent on centralized infrastructure components such as transaction process systems (TPS), business process management (BPM), and enterprise service bus (ESB) products. The connected systems participating in an event-driven architecture have more autonomy in deciding whether to further propagate the events, or not. The knowledge used to support these decisions is distributed into discrete steps or stages throughout the architecture, and encapsulated where the ownerships reside, instead of burdening the transaction-initiating sender systems with that knowledge."
