Application Development: Considerations for Microservice Architectures

By: Chayse GortonMarket Analyst, IT Services


This market perspective presents one of the themes that emerged at the AWS Summit Sydney 2019, held on May 1 and 2, 2019 at the International Convention Centre, Sydney. This year's conference focused on educating businesses on how cloud technology can help lower costs, improve efficiency, and innovate at scale.

This report looks at why organisations should consider a microservice architecture when building a new application from scratch and provides recommendations for organisations considering a microservice strategy.

"In a hypercompetitive world, the challenge of providing excellent customer experience is forcing organisations to reevaluate their existing application strategy and explore new ways to differentiate themselves from their competitors," says Chayse Gorton, market analyst, IDC Australia/New Zealand.

"The goal of an organisation's application strategy should be to promote a culture of innovation and experimentation while employing DevOps practices that reduce time to market. The application strategy should also be pursued in a way that is resilient, scalable, and ensures resources are utilised efficiently," adds Gorton.
