Microservices Assessment Platform

Over the next few months, I’ll be releasing an online platform to help you use the microservices architecture more effectively. The platform is a distillation of my experiences training and consulting at organizations around the world. It includes the following self-assessments:

  • Microservices Readiness - assess whether your organization is ready to adopt microservices
  • Microservices Applicability - assess whether the microservices architecture is a good fit for your application
  • Microservice Architecture Assessment - evaluate your application’s microservice architecture, identify areas to improve and learn how to improve them

Microservice Architecture Assessment - now available new

The Microservice Architecture Assessment is for organizations that are currently developing a microservices-based application. It assesses 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.
