Modern-Day Microservices and Conway’s Law
Organizations which design systems are constrained to produce systems which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations. — Melvin Conway
Microservices, a term coined by Martin Fowler, serve as a great tool and opportunity to help with the communication between teams and to bring focus to the overall system. This is for teams internal to XANT as well as external.
It is not only giving XANT the ability to improve internal consumption of our services, but more importantly allows for the easier consumption of our technology services by XANT clients and our partner community.
We are working on a new set of APIs. To start with, we are rolling out our products on Microsoft Dynamics, the XANT Predictive Cloud and the new XANT Mobile Now platform.
Everything has or is moving toward an API model so that it can be consumed by any device, browser, mobile or external headless services.
