Overview of this book

Enterprise Architecture (EA) is typically an aggregate of the business, application, data, and infrastructure architectures of any forward-looking enterprise. Due to constant changes and rising complexities in the business and technology landscapes, producing sophisticated architectures is on the rise. Architectural patterns are gaining a lot of attention these days. The book is divided in three modules. You'll learn about the patterns associated with object-oriented, component-based, client-server, and cloud architectures. The second module covers Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) patterns and how they are architected using various tools and patterns. You will come across patterns for Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Event-Driven Architecture (EDA), Resource-Oriented Architecture (ROA), big data analytics architecture, and Microservices Architecture (MSA). The final module talks about advanced topics such as Docker containers, high performance, and reliable application architectures. The key takeaways include understanding what architectures are, why they're used, and how and where architecture, design, and integration patterns are being leveraged to build better and bigger systems.

The four V's of big data

Big data has many definitions and many different implementations across various sectors. However, there are four common elements of any big data definition, which are popularly referred to as the V's of big data. They are as follows:

  • Velocity: This refers to the speed of data accumulation
  • Volume: This refers to the scale of data or the phase that data storage grows
  • Variety: This refers to the diversity of the data, such as structured, semi-structured, unstructured, and so on
  • Veracity: This refers to collected data's accuracy and its reflection of facts

The latest addition to the V's group is value. This refers to our ability and needs to turn accumulated data into things of value. That is not just business value, but it can also be any significant added value for social, medical, and common causes.
