How to successfully adopt and apply microservices to digital transformation

Microservices represent the latest response to the challenge of building dynamic, scalable, and high-performance services and are already widely used in high-volume, mission critical applications, but as with any emerging concept the term “Microservices” is surrounded by a considerable amount of hype, and a lot of confusion. A growing number of organisations are discovering that while the promised benefits of microservices can be realised, it takes a considerable amount of planning and effort to effectively embrace the approach.

This webinar explains the role that microservices can play in supporting public sector organisations in the delivery of their digital strategies and highlights the benefits that a microservices oriented approach can yield.

The webinar looks at the impact that microservices can have on your approach to application development, infrastructure management, and the deployment of new digital offerings. We bring together the experiences of dozens of adopting organisations to provide an insight in to the challenges that microservices present, and the ways in which organisations need to adapt in order to be successful.

We will also provide you with a simple framework that you can use to determine your own organisaton’s readiness to adopt microservices, and identify how you need to adapt in order to successfully apply microservices to your digital strategy.
