Microservices are front and center on every company’s IT operations radar. It’s an approach very different from its monolithic predator, and much of it goes against the grain of traditional thinking. It has modular, independent components and teams, yet it requires complete company involvement and end-to-end management. To some, its “iterative development” approach (multiple cycles of redevelopment for the same service) resembles repetitive failure rather than ongoing learning. Yet industry giants like Amazon and Netflix have made great strides with it.
So, is microservices the answer? What are the pitfalls? Is this the path you really want to lead your company down? Is it worth the transition from monolithic, and if so, what should you look out for?
On November 8 at 2:30 p.m. ET, join hosts JP Morgenthal, Steve Prentice and Kalyan Ramanathan for a vibrant and interactive online discussion specifically about the pitfalls of microservices, including management, sprawl, and decomposition – and how to avoid them.
