Traditional architectures are no longer suitable for the increasing needs of today's applications. The price is often paid in high bandwidth and reduced performance. Demand-driven design enables clients to request arbitrary data on demand. Companies like Facebook and Netflix have switched to demand-driven architectures to better embrace a great variety of continuously changing clients. Solutions like Relay and Falcor/JSONGraph distill such ideas. Om Next builds on these concepts to provide a Clojure(Script) based solution. Having clients be in control, we can design dynamic endpoints that run demand-driven queries directly.
In this talk, I present the motivation for a demand-driven approach and explore the solutions that Om Next brings to the table.
