It’s 2020 and business owners are expected to deploy new software technologies which are eventually making tech leaders re-think their architecture. But the main motive is to avoid anything which can slow down the software development process. Whether its while applying bug fixes or maintaining a code. But let’s face the facts, this cannot be achieved in a monolithic architecture and hence many organizations have deployed Microservices, where an application can be differentiated into various independent components that can be developed and maintained separately. 

After years of dealing with lengthy IT projects, businesses are now seizing the opportunities and benefits Microservices has to offer. Major companies like Apple, Netflix, and Amazon are already reaping the benefits of Microservices. Now with Microservices, it has become much easier to build applications and improve speed and productivity. Microservices might sound very simple and easy to deploy, but unfortunately, it’s not as simple as you imagine. For starters, increasing the number of services can result in information silos, complicate management and increase the complexities of developers, but this arises a question, is Microservices the right fit for your company? 

Let’s dive into some of the factors which to be considered before deploying Microservices – 

  • What is your goal? – Microservices helps organizations with two different goals – Agility and Scale. Where we can create continuous delivery and enable an increase in computing density through containerization. Perhaps you could be looking for the anatomy of teams in a large organization or you might be looking for different ways to scale out your business.  It is crucial to study and define what your goal will be. 
  • Is your organization prepared for Microservices? – Probably the biggest hurdle in migrating to Microservices will be whether your company is ready for it. Before deploying, various factors such as roles, responsibilities and even company culture have to be considered. Everything from the software development life cycle to process standout should be automated and ready for continuous delivery, and of course, finding the right resource is also something to look into.
  • There are various cultural and technical costs that need close attention to avoid ranking up in the technical debt.
