Microservices

A migration to microservices is usually driven by flexibility, productivity, and scalability demands. However, just because enterprises want these benefits, it doesn’t mean that their IT teams are ready for the big change. Let’s take a look at some of the strategies which can help in migrating to Microservices. 

Is your team ready for the change? While many companies have benefitted from a microservices architecture, that doesn’t mean it is a perfect fit for everyone. Two factors come into the picture here: whether an application will succeed, and if the enterprise software team has the ability to create and manage them. Teams face operation problems when they go through the migration. Determine their readiness for the new architecture by evaluating standards for code reviews, CI/CD use, testing practices, and other aspects of the code delivery workflow. 

Who does what on a Microservices team? After determining readiness for the architecture, the next step is to structure the development team to design and implement the application. But what type of team is right for you? Three microservices team structures are – The Conway’s law, Build-and-run team, and decentralized structure. business and software teams should work closely with development teams. 

How to migrate to Microservices? Firstly, find the appropriate service for the application source code and design. Train the development team to create services that are as independent and self-sufficient as possible. The next step is to ensure developers have a diverse tech stack and a framework that can manage front-end components independently from the back-end infrastructure. The final step is to start decomposing the monolithic architecture.
