The microservice approach evolved from Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with features like REST (vs. old SOAP) support, NoSQL databases, and the event-driven/reactive approach.
The new approach of constructing IT structures as microservices has grown popular over the last few years. For many companies it turned out to be an excellent way to maintain agility, move towards a DevOps and continuous testing system, and adjust to changing markets faster than the competition.
Microservices are the supreme way to follow up with rapidly changing user behaviors and business environments. The future-proof character of microservices results from the way this modern architecture deals with even the most sophisticated structures. Within the microservice approach, structures with a high level of complexity are turned into small, self-sufficient and easy-to-maintain services.
This separation of services makes any system:
a decentralized development process allows development teams to work faster and test our innovative ideas safely
when each business function (like promotion, checkout, delivery) is split, development teams specialize, engage more and work faster.
when a single microservice performs exactly one business function, developers can build more efficient, clear and testable code.
when each team is specialized on a single service, it also becomes accountable for particular KPIs, providing SLA’s for their parts, etc.
Over 80% of existing, global IT systems are developed upon monolithic architecture. Some might say that these monoliths are too large and migrating them to microservices in one go would disturb the security of the whole organization.
It doesn’t mean though, that large monolithic system cannot be transformed with this modern, microservices approach and adapted to new business objectives.
The first step is to design and develop API gateways for an existing backend solution. Having an enabled API opens a whole new way to begin implementing microservices, launch game-changing features in your monolithic system, and begin the process of turning your system into microservice architecture case by case.
To companies operating in B2B and B2C eCommerce, microservices bring even more benefits as they are a powerful method to boost omnichannel strategy.
Leveraging microservice architecture in eCommerce allows:
Along with business agility, systems leveraging microservices gain a fast and easy mechanism to test out and implement cutting-edge solutions, like AI, PWA or Voice Apps from external suppliers.
Onboarding new developers and working with external solution providers is backed with a simple structure of a single microservice and well-written documentation.
Developing microservices is strongly matched with the organization within a company. Whenever you are ready to implement microservices or wonder if they're right for your business, our experts will help you get through the entire process: from gathering requirements to going live.
