What Is Decoupled Architecture?

Written by Indicative Team


Decoupled Architecture Defined

Decoupled architecture is an architectural approach that allows each computing component to exist and perform tasks independently of one another, while also allowing the components to remain completely unaware and autonomous until instructed. By incorporating this type of architecture, it gives businesses the ability to change one computing component/service without needing to change other components/services. 

Decoupled architecture allows for:

  • Easier maintenance of code and change implementations – By building an application as multiple connected services, parts of the application can evolve independently and each service can be maintained by separated developer teams.
  • Multiple cross-platforms, languages and technologies – Different application services have different needs. By decoupling data, it helps to remove any implementation dependencies between them
  • Independent releases
  • Streamlined and faster development
  • Improved testability of computing components
