The Path to Microservices Is Paved With Good Intentions
Kevin Matheny, Sr Director Analyst, Gartner

Microservices architecture (MSA) is at the top of the hype cycle, but organizations that "do microservices" without a clear understanding of the problems it solves — and the problems it can create — risk creating new and unforeseen problems. The right architecture for your organization is a mix of fine-grained and coarse-grained services. This talk provides guidance on determining if MSA is right for your organization and clear steps for how to put your organization on the path to the right level of service granularity for your needs.
