Organizations are under pressure to build, deploy, and scale applications faster to be competitive in the market. The monolithic architecture of many existing applications obstruct innovation and increases time to market, so many organizations are migrating to MSA (Microservices Architecture). In an Agile landscape, DevOps methodologies and container technologies like Docker make it easier to implement Microservices and test them. They also reduce risk and speed up continuous deployment and continuous delivery of the Microservices. The biggest challenge is in managing all of these moving parts to sync up. In last few years, some of the large scale online organisations like Netflix, eBay and Amazon changed their application to Microservices architecture. It was not a radical shift but improvement over time. They have evolved from a monolithic to Microservices architecture due to the immense benefits.
This paper talks about why monolithic architectures aren’t an option anymore, why a transition to micro services is necessary, challenges faced by agile testing teams, Test strategy, Best practices, Achieving Agile excellence with Microservices.
