Why managing Microservices can be difficult

Posted by Dileepa WIjayanayake on Oct 22, 2019 2:57:00 PM

"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, centralized management through FlowWright


Presently, some vendors offer users access to Microservice platforms where they can build, manage and deploy Microservices.  Most of these platforms have manageability limitations and issues.  Some platforms  have problems managing configuration and deployment, while others have issues with maintainability once deployed.

Due to these limitations listed above, FlowWright took a hybrid approach when designing Microservices: instead of writing code to build a Microservice, FlowWright users can easily build a graphical workflow and turn it into a Microservice. 

You can design the workflow definition underlying your Microservice from 170+ included workflow steps - and you can also use your own custom steps.  Most FlowWright customers have built custom steps to perform unique functions (e.g., computations or custom system-specific functions) and now these custom steps can be built as a graphical workflow and turned into a simple Microservice that can be called from any platform.

Ideally, all Microservices should be managed from one place.  In FlowWright, designers can easily edit a Microservice by changing the underlying workflow definition.

FlowWright listened carefully to what users wants and need with respect to building and managing Microservices and the result is that the FlowWright platform provides an intuitive way to build a Microservice, and also provides one well-organized place to manage Microservices, making it easy for users.
