Abstract

 

Microservice architectures promise high flexibility and sustainability in system development. Multiple principles have emerged for the successful adoption of microservices, principles which impact not only the technical but also the organizational levels of a development organization. This paper reports our experiences introducing microservices in a company with a small development organization and a customer-solution-oriented business model. Our experiences show that the company can benefit from using microservices on a technical level but requires adaptations at the organizational level.
