Microservices vs. Monolith, a false dichotomy

"Monolith to microservices" is not a business goal. Business stakeholders don't care about architecture choices. They care if their customers are getting the optimum experience. Adopting microservices can have business advantages, but many times, companies overlook the disadvantages and tradeoffs. They also underestimate the inefficiencies and problems that are not directly related to the microservices transformation but often hold a project like this back. What goes wrong with them?

In this talk, we will dive into my real project experiences when we helped our clients reign in out of control microservices projects. Having a monolith isn't inherently bad, nor does microservices transformation solely deliver business value. After listening to this talk, you will know why it doesn't have to be a binary choice between microservices and a monolith. This knowledge can leave you equipped to start making improvements right away and achieve a successful transformation.
