‘Micro services’ – Transformation from Monoliths: How to Size?



  • What are Micro-services? : Micro services is a form of service-oriented architecture style wherein applications are built as a collection of different smaller services rather than one whole app. The concept of micro-services is fueled by the need to develop apps faster, be more resilient and offer a great experience for the customer.
  • Monoliths Vs Micro-services: Most of us know how difficult it is to manage complex Monolith enterprise systems. It needs deep understanding of how any one small change will affect the entire system. New developers spend months learning the system code base before they can even begin to work on it. Even the most knowledgeable of development teams is fearful of making changes or adding new code that would disrupt operation in some unforeseen way. The concept of micro services is fueled by the need to develop apps faster, make required changes easily, be more resilient and offer a great experience to the customer.
