Determine if you really need microservices
INSIGHT 1
Not every application is complicated enough to
warrant being brokeninto microservices.
Martin Fowlerand Ryan Murray from
Thoughtworks cite a “microservice premium”
where in many use cases the complexity of
microservices hampers the productivity
of your team.
There comes a point when your application
becomes very complex or your team begins to grow
past 50-75 engineers that the benefits of this
architecture begin to take off.
Put your house in order
INSIGHT 2
Continuous delivery and automation are more
important than microservices. Smallagile
teams who canintegrate their work frequently,
at least daily, are an important precursor
to microservices.
Being able to automate your systems and push code
updates regularly are critical to dealwith the
complexity you will incur with this architecture.
Appoint a master artisan
INSIGHT 3
If youdo not design and manageyour evolution to microservices
the result can be an uncontrollable sprawl. It is critical to have a
person or a smallteam responsible for controlling architectural
decisions and helping to ensure standards adoption. Google has a
small team of artisans who understand how pieces fit together and
help guide the creation of newservices.
Alex Roetterfrom
Twitterrefers to this
oversight as “applying
the right amount of salt”
You never want to
overpower the great
innovation that is
coming from the bottom
up.
INSIGHT 4
Teams should have bounded context and systems should follow
the ordinary flow of business. Melvin Conway first came up
with this principle in 1967 and it holds true today. Whenyour
services are notdirectly mapped,it makestroubleshooting or
re-architecting in the future far more difficult.
Microservices should map to
business processes Organizations which
design systems…are
constrained toproduce
designs which are copies
of thecommunication
structures ofthese
organizations.
Melvin G. Conway – 1967
Start every new product as a monolith
INSIGHT 5
It is impossible to know the best wayto divide up a
monolith until you can observe its usage.Once you
have a sensefor how your product will be used you
can decompose from there.
Today there is a bit of trial and error on sizing your
services. There may be an opportunity for someone
to help with this process through software in the
future.
Move incrementally
INSIGHT 6
Don’t throw away the monolith. This canhave
disastrous results. Takeone piece ata time and
break it off. Once the piece is working, move to the
nextnatural piece.
A few companies havefounda moreaggressive
approach can lead to lost functionality andmake
diagnosingissuesdifficult.
Create a shared repository
INSIGHT 7
Consider creating one large shared repository of all
services for teams to use in application
development. You don’twantto have two or three
active versions of a common service in use.
Your artisan(s) should help in managingthis
repository.
Apply more comprehensive monitoring
INSIGHT 8
More pieces to managetelemetry very important.
The microservices monitoring landscape is very
fragmented. There is not a clear winnerand some
companies are building their own products.
Microservices require a muchmore comprehensive
monitoring effort than you have had with your
monolith.
Improve security and governance
INSIGHT 9
More surfaces and complexity increase the needfor
security andgovernance. Consider how you will
authenticate who can speak to whom and identify
illegitimate traffic.
Who has the authority to work on certain
services? Canall services be used for all tasks in
your company? How are shared services billed or
managed?
Reap the rewards
INSIGHT 10
When successfully implemented,microservices delivers huge
increases in the speed and agility in which companies can build
and deploy software. The cost required to deliver an application
is muchless and your systems will become more resilient.
Developmenttime can gofrom months to weeks.
Companies like Airbnb,
Disney,Dropbox,GE,
Goldman Sachs, and
Twitterhave seen
development lead
times cut by as much
as 75%when using
microservices.

  • 4. Determine if you really need microservices INSIGHT 1 Not every application is complicated enough to warrant being brokeninto microservices. Martin Fowlerand Ryan Murray from Thoughtworks cite a “microservice premium” where in many use cases the complexity of microservices hampers the productivity of your team. There comes a point when your application becomes very complex or your team begins to grow past 50-75 engineers that the benefits of this architecture begin to take off.
  • 5. Put your house in order INSIGHT 2 Continuous delivery and automation are more important than microservices. Smallagile teams who canintegrate their work frequently, at least daily, are an important precursor to microservices. Being able to automate your systems and push code updates regularly are critical to dealwith the complexity you will incur with this architecture.
  • 6. Appoint a master artisan INSIGHT 3 If youdo not design and manageyour evolution to microservices the result can be an uncontrollable sprawl. It is critical to have a person or a smallteam responsible for controlling architectural decisions and helping to ensure standards adoption. Google has a small team of artisans who understand how pieces fit together and help guide the creation of newservices. Alex Roetterfrom Twitterrefers to this oversight as “applying the right amount of salt” You never want to overpower the great innovation that is coming from the bottom up.
  • 7. INSIGHT 4 Teams should have bounded context and systems should follow the ordinary flow of business. Melvin Conway first came up with this principle in 1967 and it holds true today. Whenyour services are notdirectly mapped,it makestroubleshooting or re-architecting in the future far more difficult. Microservices should map to business processes Organizations which design systems…are constrained toproduce designs which are copies of thecommunication structures ofthese organizations. Melvin G. Conway – 1967
  • 8. Start every new product as a monolith INSIGHT 5 It is impossible to know the best wayto divide up a monolith until you can observe its usage.Once you have a sensefor how your product will be used you can decompose from there. Today there is a bit of trial and error on sizing your services. There may be an opportunity for someone to help with this process through software in the future.
  • 9. Move incrementally INSIGHT 6 Don’t throw away the monolith. This canhave disastrous results. Takeone piece ata time and break it off. Once the piece is working, move to the nextnatural piece. A few companies havefounda moreaggressive approach can lead to lost functionality andmake diagnosingissuesdifficult.
  • 10. Create a shared repository INSIGHT 7 Consider creating one large shared repository of all services for teams to use in application development. You don’twantto have two or three active versions of a common service in use. Your artisan(s) should help in managingthis repository.
  • 11. Apply more comprehensive monitoring INSIGHT 8 More pieces to managetelemetry very important. The microservices monitoring landscape is very fragmented. There is not a clear winnerand some companies are building their own products. Microservices require a muchmore comprehensive monitoring effort than you have had with your monolith.
  • 12. Improve security and governance INSIGHT 9 More surfaces and complexity increase the needfor security andgovernance. Consider how you will authenticate who can speak to whom and identify illegitimate traffic. Who has the authority to work on certain services? Canall services be used for all tasks in your company? How are shared services billed or managed?
  • 13. Reap the rewards INSIGHT 10 When successfully implemented,microservices delivers huge increases in the speed and agility in which companies can build and deploy software. The cost required to deliver an application is muchless and your systems will become more resilient. Developmenttime can gofrom months to weeks. Companies like Airbnb, Disney,Dropbox,GE, Goldman Sachs, and Twitterhave seen development lead times cut by as much as 75%when using microservices.
