Microservices are coming, and the reasons are becoming increasingly clear: Companies are eager to decouple their monolithic applications in the name of improved flexibility, increased scalability and quicker deployments.
However, like many new disruptive technologies, there are reasons to be skeptical. Are microservices right for your company? How do you know you’re ready and what does ready look like? Why do so many companies fail? What are best practices and how can you hit a home run with microservices? These questions and more will be answered in this special webinar originally hosted live on April 2nd, 2019.
This exclusive event, brought to you by Nearshore Americas, features Michael Hahn, Chief Operating Officer of Tiempo Development, a recognized leader in nearshore software development and Sean Sullivan, CTO of CBT Nuggets, a leading online learning company that recently underwent a major microservice migration.
"Hitting microservices out of the park" is not just about coding and architecture effort that's required to transform a monolithic application. Success also relies on a reorganization - at least virtually - in the make up of your IT teams.
Many busineses that buy into the benefits of microservices make the mistake of using their current IT team structure and focusing only on building the microservices and writing new code. But they then run into issues when trying to move the microservices into production. They do not realize they also need to develop and automate new processes for data integration and interfaces, test that the new microservices are working properly and have the necessary security posture, and make sure they can be deployed rapidly.
