Composable Architecture

What is composable architecture?

Composable architecture allows companies to select and customize the best possible software tools on the market, enabling flexible exchange of software, systems and tools. Thus, companies are not bound to the functions of individual systems or plugins but can put together their own best-of-breed solution. Composable Architecture enables companies to create more comprehensive, enhanced, and robust digital experiences faster and with less effort than traditional stack approaches. Composable is an architecture in which every component is pluggable, scalable and interchangeable, and can be continuously improved through agile development to meet changing business needs.

Composable Architecture shifts the focus from monolithic software suites and hosting to the following: Instead, companies select the best solutions from a variety of online services and platforms. All of this is based on APIs and causes the focus to shift from the infrastructure to an API-first approach. Composable Architecture is agile and adaptable, always up to date. This enables companies to position themselves securely for the future and to advance current and future digital experiences. Composable Architecture implemented in the practice of retailers is also called composable commerce.
