Architecture Strategies for Enterprise Services

This IDC Perspective, written for CIOs, architects, and development teams, describes an architectural strategy for integrating microservices at an enterprise level. Microservices and APIs are the new application architecture for the digital economy and cloud. While microservices can provide many advantages, they also provide new opportunities for problems. One issue is the explosion in the number of services and with it questions about how to handle the large numbers, mitigate redundancy and overlap, and manage them across the entire enterprise and ecosystem."Services and APIs should be categorized according to their openness and scope and different architecture, guidelines, and requirements applied to each within the context of the enterprise's culture, environment, and risk," says Mike Rosen, research VP for IDC's IT Executive Program.
