How do we add some sanity to the process of constructing microservices and provide guidelines and design heuristics on restructuring microservices. In this talk we will look at life after running microservices architectures in production and learn from the mistakes committed over the past five years. We will analyze real life systems on the criteria for consolidating microservices into monoliths or moduliths based on technical and business heuristics as illustrated In . The techniques - a combination of mapping microservices to core technical attributes  reduced by affinity mapping and business domain context distillation  - have emerged from working with a number of customers where the value of microservices has not been realized despite leveraging Domain Driven Design.
