Because successfully adopting a microservice oriented architecture mindset requires changing technology, process, and people, our engagement approach takes a holistic perspective. We outline four parallel, yet interlocked, workstreams, and recommend an iterative approach to show early, production-ready results. Solliance can iteratively design, develop, deliver guidance, architecture plans, implementation roadmaps, and production systems. Additionally, our strong communication skills and methodology enables us to efficiently mentor your team and transfer ownership to your staff.
Rapidly delivering business projects at scale depends upon factoring business capabilities as well-behaved microservices. A loosely-coupled and tightly integrated microservice portfolio enables concurrent development projects, encapsulates legacy systems, and decreases integration effort across multiple channels and brands.
Our consulting team helps you transform architecture, technology, collaboration processes, and business engagement practices, so that you can achieve both IT business goals and IT technical goals. Our methodology gains IT executive, director, and architect alignment on IT business goals. We quantify IT business goals as measurable key performance indicators (KPIs) that can be used to benchmark improvement during the initiative phases and microservice adoption cycle.
Technical strategy and goals should support IT business goals. Our methodology creates a bespoke ‘north star’ that will guide your architecture and technology decisions.
Our approach starts with a discovery phase to help you quantify initiative goals, select appropriate microservice decomposition patterns, identify domain model starter building blocks, review as-is application code state, understand technology platform and tooling gaps, assess process alignment, review team participation requirements, and estimate application refactoring cost, effort, and time. We produce assessments / scorecards, delivery roadmaps, cost projections, and staffing strategies for strategic decision making.
Our expert, experienced architects rapidly review your current code state, identify tightly coupled hotspots, assess technical debt, and propose both quick-win initiatives and complete capability roadmaps.
We introduce proven reference architecture templates, technology selection matrices, technology frameworks, patterns, DevOps playbooks, user stories, and adoption tools.
Effective microservice initiatives obtain cross-functional participation and transform development and delivery by adopting Cybersecurity and DevOps best practices.To gain business value, the microservice initiative team should facilitate and champion API adoption across business projects and solution teams. Our approach actively includes cross-functional roles to build shared team expectations, define team member collaboration responsibilities, and socialize best practice collaboration worksheets.
A microservice strategy can target monolithic system decomposition using four distinct patterns: Encapsulate and Erode, Encapsulate and Extend, Internal Refactor, or API Refresh. Our methodology minimizes business risk and increases initiative success by sharing best practices strategy that help you avoid and overcome common challenges for each pattern.
Our phased engagement approach iteratively builds strategy, roadmap, and architecture plans that uniquely addresses your goals, principles, current state, target state, challenges, and team skills. The approach divides a microservice initiative into four distinct phases.
