So, you’ve got your first MVP to the market. The product is pretty well designed. It kind of, sort of works, but it’s still not perfect. That being said, it was well-received by the market and brings clients and investors on board. There is a great potential in it but needs to be more polished, so further development is needed to scale it up. Since the live product already might have a considerable user base it’s a good idea that any changes that need to be implemented into the system could be done seamlessly, without the need to put down the entire thing. So, the entirely new architecture needs to be designed in such a way to allow adding new functionalities on the fly and with room for potential further development.
The microservices-based approach produces a type of architecture that drifts from a traditional monolith approach to a more spread out and unit-focused philosophy. Favoring flexibility and scalability, it might be a perfect solution for companies that want to bring their system to the next level fast and with a fairly low entry barrier. Of course, one size doesn’t fit all. So it’s always good to keep in mind the use cases and limitations when implementing any strategy. That being said when applied correctly, microservices can become a key component of a company’s growth.
