How microservices take the complexity out of governance

Governance: it’s not a developer’s favorite word, but it’s a necessary part of ensuring software quality. Especially as apps become increasingly sophisticated, governance can be a complex and costly task.

In this expert e-guide, we explore a distributed, microservices-based approach to governance in a modern app architecture. Learn about:

  • The elements of microservices governance
  • The key role of APIs in governance
  • How to adapt IT for microservices with automation tools
  • And more

  • 6 advantages of microservices

    Microservices architecture is ideal for modern deployments that use technologies like cloud, Kubernetes, Docker containers and more. This white paper dives into 6 advantages microservices offers, including that:

    • Microservices are easier to deploy
    • They simplify cross-team coordination

    Access the white paper here to further explore why you should consider adopting a microservices architecture.

  • Application Modernisation: The Essential Guide

    One of the emerging trends is to engineer applications using microservices. Such an approach promotes developing and deploying applications that are composed of independent, autonomous, modular, self-contained units.

    This is fundamentally different from the way traditional, monolithic applications are designed, developed, deployed and managed. A microservices architecture means software development teams can rapidly update individual microservices without disrupting other parts of the application.

    In this guide, we look at how distributed systems have evolved to support more agile software development.
