Being a CTO is a very fulfilling opportunity. It gives the possibility to shape innovative products in terms of their technology, MVPs and the overall design. Being a CTO means taking full responsibility for the company’s overall development including product management and scalability, tech stack, team growth, and management and often overseeing the next version of the product. All of this might get somewhat overwhelming, and when it does, it might be a good idea to find a partner who can take some of the problems off a CTO’s head.
Let’s run through an example scenario. Say a company has their first MVP on the market. It is well-received by the market and brings clients and investors on-board. The product is well-designed and it works, but it has room for improvement. The product has great potential, but V2 needs to be more polished and further development is needed to scale it up. Since the live product may already have a considerable user base, any changes implemented into the system should be done seamlessly and without downtime. The new architecture should be designed in such a way that allows the addition of new functionalities and leaves room for further development.
The microservice-based approach produces a type of architecture that has a more spread out and unit-focused philosophy than a traditional monolith. Favoring flexibility and scalability, microservices may be the perfect solution for companies that want to quickly bring their systems to the next level. Granted one size does not fit all, so it’s good to keep in mind the intended uses and limitations of any strategy. If a microservices are a good fit, they can become key to a company’s growth when applied correctly.
