Today’s business environment requires rapid response to clients, fast deploying software applications, constant availability, easy maintenance, and more. Traditional architectures can handle this, but with limitations. To overcome these limitations, microservices is the ideal solution. Compared to conventional architecture, microservice solutions can quickly and efficiently handle software changes.
What are Microservices?
Microservices, which you may also know as microservices architecture, is a cloud-native architectural approach that is a single application approach composed of many loosely coupled and independently deployable more minor services. The deployment of microservices is crucial for its functionality.
Microservices architecture is the best way to deliver large complex applications with frequent, rapid, and reliable delivery. Technology stack also evolves in an organization with the help of microservices. Wondering how to understand microservices best? Let me brief you on what it is not. Microservices architecture is nothing like monolithic architecture and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). Every microservice has its own data model, and it manages its data. Dumb Pipes, using this data, moves between microservices.
Meet Our Client!
Our client is a leading ICT solutions supplier in the mortgage and consumptive credit industry. Their responsibility is to create business-vital, self-supporting products that can likewise be implanted in other product suites. The organization additionally offers enterprise-level agile coaching and development services.
The challenges our client was facing were in 3 aspects:
1st – Legacy system:
Prior to our solution implementation, the model had independent components.
2nd – Business:
Due to the increasing use of the component, frequent updates were required leading to regular breaks, which decreased overall efficiency.
Demonstrating and deploying these independent components inside the system posed another challenge. As one defective element could lead to the malfunction of the entire program.
3rd – Technical Challenges:
Having a module designed as a monolithic unit created an operational overhead. The implementation of this module required detailed release planning and increased the bulk of the overall program.
Based on their challenges, we customized a solution for our client. Our solution mainly reduced cost & time, and increased programming, and upsurged efficiency by letting the program continuously test modules as microservices.
We proposed taking out the transformation administration and a couple of other independent programs and running it outside the framework as a microservice. This model has not simply expanded the program’s capacity to perform various tasks yet additionally permitted more straightforward imperfection recognition and tracking.
How did our solution work and benefit our client?
As a microservice, the transformation service provides stronger module boundaries as it can be deployed independently and called from the product whenever needed rather than integrated with the entire system.
From our solution, the client benefited in various factors, such as; it was no problem scaling up the system with this architecture, as the entire module could be isolated, and the individual components could be upgraded without impacting the system’s environment. This solution also offered the customers an increase in focus on the transformation component.
Unique modularization, more accessible solutions to big applications, attractive benefits, scalability, flexibility in choosing technologies, etc., seem to be microservices architecture’s critical features. If you have a large project, need frequent updates in separate parts, quick autonomous delivery, or scale your solutions, microservices is the best solution.
Microservices architectural development with the right partner like Aspire Systems can do wonders for your business.
You can learn all about this transformation, the future impact, the technologies used, the target points we were working on, and more.
