The Microservices assessment platform now supports organizations

We are pleased to announce that the Microservices assessment platform now implements organizations. Organizations enable you to collaborate with your colleagues to assess your application’s microservice architecture and view the results of the assessment.

With the introduction of organizations, applications (along with the assessments and services etc.) belong to either an individual or an organization.

When you are logged in, the user interface is in one of two modes:

  • Personal mode - you can access the applications that belong to you
  • Organization mode - you can access the applications that belong to the currently selected organization

Let’s look at how to use organizations.

Create an organization

You use the top-right dropdown to create an organization. First, select Create Organization..:

Second, enter the name of the new organization.

The newly created organization becomes the current organization. Since no applications are owned by the organization, the list of applications is empty. You can now create applications that are accessible by others in the organization. Alternatively, as I’ll show you later, you can move applications that you created previously to this organization.

Invite a colleague to an organization

You can use the top-right dropdown to invite users to current organization. First, select Invite User...:

Then, enter the email address of the person you want to invite,

The Assessment Platform will send that person an invitation email. If they are not a registered user, they can signup before accepting the invitation.

Select the current organization

You can use the top-right dropdown to switch between organizations and personal mode. Select the organization or Personal Mode:

Change the ownership of an application

You can change the ownership of an application from yourself to an organization or vice versa using the Change Ownership. If you are in personal mode, you can change the ownership of your application to an organization. If you are in organization mode, you can change the ownership of an application to a different organization or yourself. To do so, select the new owner from the popup window:

This will change the owner of the application, along with its services and assessments.

New workshop: Architecting for fast, sustainable flow

Enabling DevOps and Team Topologies thru architecture

DevOps and Team topologies are vital for delivering the fast flow of changes that modern businesses need.

But they are insufficient. You also need an application architecture that supports fast, sustainable flow.
