How to Avoid Building a Microservices Death Star (featuring Forrester)

Presented by

Randy Heffner, Vice President-Principal Analyst, Forrester & Przemek Kulik, Senior Director, Product Management, Software AG

About this talk

If you're a Star Wars fan, you know about the original Death Star, and you know why it failed. In the world of microservices, Death Star architecture is an anti-pattern where poorly designed microservices become highly interdependent, forming a complex network of interservice communication. When this happens, the entire thing becomes slow, inflexible, and fragile – and easy to blow up. It’s easy to make a complex system more complex, but to make it simpler — and to avoid building a microservices Death Star – requires the right strategy and design practices. And so far, only 13% of companies using microservices say their architecture is production-proven for a high quality of service. Come hear our guest speaker, Forrester vice president and principal analyst Randy Heffner, along with Przemek Kulik, Software AG’s Senior Director of Product Management, as they discuss: • How the demands of business innovation should guide your microservices approach • The role of product teams and business domains in unified API/microservice design • How a service mesh can ease the heavy lifting in microservices development • The emerging structure of a multi-mesh microservice app platform Don’t miss this chance to get Forrester’s guidance for creating a successful enterprise-level strategy for microservices.
