The Benefits of Microservices

Microservices are more than just a new technology. They shift the focus of software delivery from large, monolithic applications that require coordination across multiple teams to distributed components that do one thing well, assembled into an API portfolio that digitizes business and technical capabilities.

As a result, organizations that implement microservices can gain:

  • Quicker software delivery due to relaxed coordination requirements
  • A transformation from maintaining systems in silos to coordinated API-centric business and technical capabilities
  • The ability to compose new applications that address current and emerging needs seamlessly

Microservices Require a Fundamental Shift in Team and Technology

Migrating to microservices requires more than just selecting a few technologies and frameworks. You also have to change how you think about software delivery. Organizations that adopt microservices must revisit their organizational structures, culture, and automation strategies. Without these shifts in thinking, your company will introduce more technical debt and slower delivery cycles, drifting away from your goal in adopting microservices.

We coach teams on the best approach to microservices, prepare organizations for microservice adoption with training and embedded coaches, and provide regular reviews to assess progress and course-correct as needed to maximize your investment in microservices.

Migrating and Integrating Legacy Systems

Not all microservices are built from the ground up: microservices need to coexist with legacy systems. From integration to containerization to proper security, your approach to microservices will affect whether you realize their benefits (and to what extent).

Whether you want to migrate an existing system to use microservices or consume your microservices from a legacy system, we can provide the guidance you need to make your modernization efforts a success.
