Method and System for Migrating a System of Record to a Cache of a Computing Device

System of Record (SoR) is defined as a system that requires significant amount of code to represent or update its current state. For example, a system that manipulates a personal information whose state is constituted from multiple database tables through multiple relational joins and queries can be considered as a SoR . Although, current state of the system is maintained in a storage device , the current state cannot be effectively utilized only through Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) of a storage device. Instead, programs are required to interpret and modify the current state .

Disclosed is a method and system for migrating the SoR to a cache of a computing device using an API-based replication. The API-based replication is defined as replication of one or more business entities of the SoR that are exposed by APIs of the SoR to the computing device.

The one or more business entities are replicated to the computing device and made available to users of the computing device through an API . The amount of code that is needed to implement the API on the computing device is much lesser than code of the SoR since an assembly code resides on the SoR.

For example, consider a person providing one or more personal details such as , but not limited to, name, address, and bank account. Here, each of the one or more personal details is maintained in a separate database table . The SoR assembles information about the person from its constituent details and replicates the personal information to the computing device as a single business entity usi...
