Microservices is a popular approach to software architecture that breaks down an application into a collection of small, independent services. Each microservice is responsible for a single function within the larger application, allowing for faster and more efficient development, deployment, and maintenance.
This approach has gained popularity in recent years due to its ability to promote scalability, flexibility, and agility in the development process. By dividing an application into smaller, independent services, teams can work on different parts of the system concurrently. This not only accelerates development but also makes it easier to manage and update the system over time.
According to a recent study Nautical commissioned with Forrester consulting, 69% of respondents indicated that microservices were an essential technical feature for their marketplace platforms.
