Microservices architecture (MSA) promotes loosely coupled services as building blocks for software system architecture. It was first adopted by large internet companies like Netflix and now is popular with enterprise architects everywhere.

You may find yourself asking what the main premises of MSA are and whether it replaces SOA. In this webinar Frank and Srinath will

  • Compare and contrast MSA with SOA and discuss both their pros and cons
  • Examine what MSA looks like in practice
  • Answer questions such as where to use databases, how to use security and how to perform service orchestration and integration
  • Discuss practical challenges
