API services have become critical over the last few years, with many cloud providers providing APIs for many different services. Even non-UI based applications provide APIs for a variety of services. For example, Microsoft Azure provides APIs to make use of Azure features like storage, key vaults and much more.
"Microservices" was once just another buzzword, but now organizations have begun to understand their value and how they can significantly and positively impact business processes. The idea of Microservices arose from the difficulty of managing large systems so as to avoid duplicate functionality in different areas and from the efficiency that their re-useable nature would theoretically deliver.
Microservices can be architected in many ways; most depend on a lot of custom code, or modules strung together that then provide Microservices. FlowWright takes a different approach to designing Microservices with the users in mind. We share more below.
Service oriented architecture, also known as SOA, has been around for a while, but what about service oriented processes? We currently have customers who are already implementing these types of processes using FlowWright's framework.
FlowWright workflow-business process management platform offers several micro-services options for users to take advantage of. Micro-services follow a clear separation of functionality that engages within the FlowWright user interface as follows:
As many Enterprise organizations implement Micro-services, they either have non-working or satisfactory implementations of Micro services. This is a trend we have seen the last 2 years within our customer base. What companies are truly looking for is a workflow solution to re-architect their Micro-services architecture/solution.
