From Domain-Driven Design (DDD).
A service often needs to publish events when it updates its data. These events might be needed, for example, to update a CQRS view. Alternatively, the service might participate in an choreography-based saga, which uses events for coordination.
How does a service publish an event when it updates its data?
Organize the business logic of a service as a collection of DDD aggregates that emit domain events when they created or updated. The service publishes these domain events so that they can be consumed by other services.
