Faster time-to-market and increased flexibility - these are the greatest advantages of a microservice architecture. Applications can be quickly integrated and deployed. Unwanted or obsolete applications are shut down or replaced with better services.


Easy replaceability

By focusing on a single functionality, microservices can be developed and implemented relatively quickly

Focus on user benefits

The core functionality can be delivered quickly to provide an early benefit

Flexibility

Microservices are independent; each microservice can use a different language or technology stack


What are Microservices?

With Microservices, the application software consists of independent subtasks that communicate with each other via application programming interfaces (APIs). These applications (microservices) are usually decoupled and perform a dedicated task. This procedure allows a service to be built modularly. Applications must be designed in such a way that they cover all aspects of a solution – from the user interface to the database.

Traditionally, most IT infrastructures are built on a monolithic concept, i.e. on an architecture that can be described as “the big picture”. In a monolithic architecture, the applications are mapped in a single homogeneous unit. This homogeneous unit can be advantageous, but with large, complex solutions it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain the application, continue to develop it or significantly change the individual applications.

Benefits of Microservices

By focusing on individual services, microservice-based software is much less complex in its elements than a monolithic architecture. The microservice approach also facilitates software maintenance and updating. New services can be developed and deployed faster. If a microservice malfunctions, the entire application – e.g. E-Commerce platform – is not immediately paralyzed.  Microservices are also easier to scale than monolithic applications. Other advantages include:

  • Adaptability
  • Easier distribution of development work among several teams
  • Subdivision of complexity
  • Modularisation
  • Autonomization

Microservices with AOE

Faster Time-to-Market

Microservices can usually be developed and deployed faster than monolithic applications

Freely selectable Technology

The most suitable programming language or technology can be freely selected for each microservice

Size and Complexity

Microservices are clearer, smaller, and less complex than monolithic applications

Scalability

A microservice application is easier to scale than comparable monolithic applications

Autonomy

Microservices can be delivered and deployed as needed

Single Point of Responsibility

Through this approach, there is a clearly defined responsibility during develpment

Limitable Failures

Malfunctions and failure of infrastructure or microservices can be limited locally

One Team, one Microservice

One microservice is developed by one team. Communication problems between teams are reduced

Customizable Resources

The IT infrastructure and resources can be adapted to the respective microservice
