When organizations embark on digital transformation, there are key things that will add value and shape to their journey - the ability to react fast to market conditions, innovate rapidly, and market quickly among others. To this end, a mircoservice architecture (MSA) will aid organizations by increasing their agility. However, they also need to relook at their strategy and the way they operate to gain full advantage of an MSA. Starting from how the teams work, how the infrastructure is managed, what kind of continuous delivery methodologies are used, and how the microservices are monitored and supported need to be considered.

This session will discuss the impact of microservices on an organization's overall IT strategy, focusing on the benefits of adopting an MSA as well as the challenges and how to address these.
