Microservices, Monoliths, and Self-Contained Systems: Time to Break It Down
By Josh Symonds
Is your application too difficult to manage? Do changes take dozens of
developers hundreds of hours to execute, and frequently result in downtime
across all your site’s functions? It sounds like you have a monolith! A
monolith is one of the three main software architectures that define most
applications. Whether you’ve intentionally set out to create a monolith or
not, it’s worth at least weighing the pros and cons of the different
architectural approaches and deciding which one makes the most sense for your
applications. The proper design pattern can save your organization time and
money, and can make your engineers a whole lot happier. But how will you know
which is right for you? Read on to figure out if a monolith, microservices,
or self-contained system makes the most sen... (more)

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in
enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and
increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes
more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital
exhaust' from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing,
APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things,
and now even blockchain.
