In Part 2 of this series, we took a high-level view of the common architectural elements that determine how your integration becomes the key to transforming your customer experience. I laid out how I’ve approached the use case and how I’ve used successful customer portfolio solutions as the basis for researching a generic architectural blueprint. The […]
Microservices and microservice architecture is the modern approach to building cloud-native applications as independent services.
One of the greatest challenges of moving from traditional monolithic application design to a microservices architecture is being able to monitor your business transaction flow—the flow of events via micro service calls throughout your entire system.
What are Microservices?
Microservices are an architecture for breaking up a monolithic application into a collection of smaller pieces. Each of those pieces provides a particular function via a well-defined and carefully managed API. The collection delivers the same overall business value as the original monolithic application, but the independence of the individual pieces means they can be updated much more quickly without impacting the overall collection. (This requires, of course, that any changes to the API are done in a backwards-compatible way.)
