Do you think Composable?

What is the first thing you imagine when you hear “composable”?

I think it is something that can be easily modified, built, configured, and integrated. What are your thoughts on this? (Let me know in the comments below!)

Enterprises aiming to be more adaptive to their customer needs while staying resilient wish to be composable!

The question is, are you someone who believes in the simplification of design modules and leveraging modules from other resources? That to quickly adapt you should be able to seamlessly swap those same modules in and out? Are you someone who is open to innovation and exploring new capabilities? Do you believe in cost reduction (for instance, with reusable modules)?

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, then building applications in a composable way is the solution for you!

But how do you begin “thinking composable”?

It isn’t hard! You can start by focusing on which parts of your enterprise change quickly and frequently, such as customer/marketing segments or products, as they are most likely to benefit from composability.

This is not going to happen overnight. It takes time to understand and adapt to composability, but gradually it becomes useful

First we need to understand the advantages of composability and how to “think composable” in a constructive way. But then how and where can we experiment with our composable thoughts?

I’ve got an answer for that, too! Entando has built an Application Composition Platform (ACP) that you and your organization can use to experiment with the idea of composability. You can start building composable applications with the Entando ACP.

Entando’s mission is to standardize and orchestrate the composable approach and the composition process. It is the leading open-source Application Composition Platform for building cloud-native, composable applications on top of Kubernetes.

To give you a little more insight, the ACP is a set of technologies that enables teams to build, deploy, run and manage applications developed by composing and integrating components and business capabilities.

If this interests you, here is a series of blogs and video tutorials to help you get started.

We at Entando are also working to build a community to create awareness about composable applications. If you’d like to learn along with us and contribute to our community, then Modular Squad is the perfect place for you! This is our Discord Link. Come join us, and let’s build a composable future!
