Enterprise technology businesses understand the need for their technology to be flexible, scalable, independent, manageable and uniquely testable. But then, why do many organizations still struggle with getting the most of their microservice architecture?
Product-led businesses run on the dynamic nature of the changing needs of their customer, and as the customers’ expectations keep changing, design thinking teams keep fulfilling product backlogs and adding features to their products. These range from core product features to support features across human resources, finance/billing, customer services & administration amongst others. Adding features leads to data and processes to slowly become siloed, and in effect, even technology teams with a micro-services view of building their product often end up turning themselves into a monolith.
