Microservices & Containers

Leverage microservices & containers to prioritize innovations aligned to business and IT needs

At Gartner Enterprise Architecture & Technology Innovation Summit

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. 

Apply MASA principles to improve customer experience by means of seamless interactions across multiexperience apps, devices and channels supported by mediated APIs, multiple enterprise applications and a mesh of services.
