Solace Creates “Event Horizon” Initiative for IoT and Event Management

Solace is launching “Event Horizon,” a program that will address the complex challenges around widespread adoption of event-driven architecture - essential for the future of IoT and mobile services.

The initiative will deliver the first event management platform, support the developer community with training and thought leadership, form strategic partnerships with enterprise-scale market leaders. and contribute to open source development frameworks like AsyncAPI and Spring Cloud Stream.

As large enterprises scale up their digital transformations, current request/reply methods waste precious amounts of time through inefficient communication between applications. This wasted time accumulates with every interaction, resulting in unacceptable delays in service for the consumer.

Event-driven architecture is widely recognized as a robust solution which allows fast and secure data movement, but an industry-wide shift is required to create the platforms, tools and developer community to make it viable for widespread adoption.

Solace will be launching the Beta version of the first event management platform this September to support the role that current API portals like Apigee, Axway, Dell Boomi and MuleSoft play.

Solace will complement its product development efforts by partnering with leading providers of event-related services and technologies to develop joint solutions.

The company will work with systems integrators to help customers successfully implement event-driven architecture.

"The tools available to help developers and architects create and leverage events just aren't at the same level as those in the REST space," said Shawn McAllister, Solace CTO. "The event management tools we're adding to our platform will make it easier for developers and architects to build, deploy, and manage large numbers of events and event-driven applications."
