The Microservice Architecture Assessment is now available

The Microservice Architecture Assessment is a distillation of my experiences training and consulting at organizations around the world. It’s for organizations that are currently developing a microservices-based application. The Microservice Architecture Assessment evaluates what you have built and tells you how to improve it. By using the Microservice Architecture Assessment, you reduce architectural and organizational risk and maximize the benefits of the microservice architecture.

The assessment consists of two types of questionnaires. The first assesses multiple aspects of your application architecture, organization and process. The second type of questionnaire is used to assess an individual service. By evaluating an application and each of its services, the Microservice Architecture Assessment evaluates your current architecture, identifies weaknesses and suggests improvements.
