This is a compilation of all the articles, samples and other relevant resources regarding Loosely Coupled solutions focused on small and medium businesses.
By definition, a loosely coupled system is one in which each of its components has, or makes use of, little or no knowledge of the definitions of other separate components. In other words, your solution relies in a separated environment while the digital core (a.k.a ERP) stays vanilla, with no (or little) customization.
This architecture provides much more flexibility in terms of runtime, services, UX. And adds the benefits of the cloud to your solution.
