Thoughts on Composable Architecture?


I'm wondering if you any of you have heard about the Composable Architecture methodology? What are your thoughts on it? 



Figure 1. Composable Architecture

Composable architecture refers to a design approach where software systems are developed by combining independent and interchangeable components or services. The key aspects of a composable architecture include:

  • Modularity - The system is broken down into discrete modules or components that can be developed, deployed and scaled independently.

  • Loose coupling - The interaction between components is well-defined and not tightly coupled. Components have minimal interdependencies.

  • Interoperability - Components conform to shared interface definitions and protocols to communicate and interact with each other.

  • Replaceability - Components can be easily replaced without affecting the overall architecture. The system is not dependent on a specific component implementation.

  • Automation - assembly and configuration of the system from individual components is automated through definition files/APIs rather than custom coding.

  • Data separation - Components own and manage their own data storage rather than relying on a centralized database.

  • Dynamic binding - Components are discovered and combined at runtime to assemble business capabilities on demand in response to changing requirements.
