An IDC survey suggests that by 2021 80% of all application would be developed on cloud platforms using Microservices. It has advised organizations to adopt modern app architectures with horizontal scaling to optimize infrastructure and support innovation in businesses. Monolithic applications are simply not up to the task of scaling up and are likely to give maintenance and security issues.
Platform-based models are on their way to become the dominant business strategies in the future and it is important that organizations redefine their monolithic legacy systems to microservices applications built on the cloud. Lucky for you, we have developed a modernization and SaaS development suite with pre-built modules available in the form of containers and microservices. We call it Techcello and it can be used in the following cases:
- Migration from a monolithic to a microservices architecture pattern
- SaaS enablement of an existing on premise application
- Multiple product line offerings by optimizing SaaS operations
- SaaS optimization to monetize capabilities
Shifting to a microservices architecture pattern will help organizations to overcome the risk of legacy IT core and thereby avoid losing out to competition. It will also improve the maintainability and the operability of the application which translates to better customer experience.
The thing with Techcello is that it is highly customizable and can be tailor-made to fit the customer’s requirements. You can integrate these components together through Rest API calls or Event-driven architecture. The pre-built modules can be used individually or together and are ideal for converting a monolithic SaaS application to a microservices one or building one from scratch. The Techcello accelerator has the following module.
Boiler plate for microservices: Proven jumpstart code equipped with OOTB best practices, plumbing, and templates for microservices.
Microservices specific ACL: It offers the plugin for performing policy based access checks and enforcement both at an API level and at Data level.
Microservices Event Mesh: It heavy lifts the infrastructure development and operations. It also allows the microservices architecture to adhere to event driven architecture.
Microservices Dependency Management: It offers the ability to configure the discrepancies between Microservices for API and events. It also allows validation of dependency integrity in a specific environment.
Microservices DevOps Portal: It offers the ability for DevOps to manage the entire provisioning of Microservices infrastructure from a single pane view. It also provides OOTB IAC template for the overall microservices architecture provisioning that a DevOps can choose from or modify.
Scalability, Speed, and Business
In order to gain a competitive edge, organizations are eyeing microservices and API so that they can accelerate their move to cloud. Modernization from monolithic to microservices architecture will give organizations scalability, stability, simplicity, adaptability, reusability, and agility to their IT challenges.
Techcello approaches microservices in a feasible and diverted manner to make IT future-ready. It enables quick adoption of market dynamics and technological advancements. Apart from flexibility and scalability, it also helps customers utilize the full potential of cloud and its benefits. Containerizing applications, business processes and data into hybrid microservices is possible and enhances functionality. Techcello is also highly customizable and can be deployed on cloud, on premise, or both while driving orchestration.
The following are prerequisites for microservices migration:
- A solid microservices architecture for Software, Deployment, and DevOps
- Base modules or cross cutting modules that fit the microservices pattern
- Boiler plate quick start for microservices with best practices embedded for quality and standardization
- Microservices operational services to collaborate, run and operate microservices
Satisfying all the criteria above is difficult for most organizations and as a result, the development of applications in the microservices architecture is a complex and expensive endeavour. To add to the problems, a lack of expertise and experience will cause maintainability and security issues.
Continuous maintenance is a laborious task which takes up a significant amount of time, money and resource to accomplish. Despite zero influence on businesses, it is mandatory for those building a SaaS application based on the microservices architecture pattern.
The process does not end with development. A lot of effort and money goes into maintenance, testing, bug fixing and enhancing. Techcello will help you achieve all of these in just two easy steps. Even though it is just a twostep process, it gives a lot of business benefits. Some of them are:
- A jumpstart to migrate your monolithic application to a microservices model saving both cost and time
- A time tested foundation to build domain microservices without much hassle thereby reducing rework
- Flexibility to upgrade to the latest Techcello versions periodically thereby significantly reducing maintenance effort
