Microservices: a modern architecture needs modern management
An architecture based on microservices means more agility and better results. It is possible to build applications by breaking them down into independent services. The services communicate with each other using APIs and promote great agility in development teams. So you spend much less time.
Such an architecture allows for easier corrections and adjustments, which makes management much more efficient!
In a digital world, you need agility to keep up with the constant transformations. Any business can create a digital ecosystem, but needs to seamlessly connect systems, devices, applications, and partners. Such connections are only possible thanks to APIs, integration and microservices. And you can count on Software AG in this journey!

The architecture is what will determine the efficiency, agility, and costs for creating applications. When we talk about microservices, we are referring to an approach that breaks down applications by basic functions. Each function or service can be created and deployed independently.
In everyday life, we come across many examples of autonomous services to perform specific tasks. Think of an online shopping experience. When you receive a store ad, you have one service; when you search for products in the search bar, you have used another service; when you add an item to the shopping cart, a new service; when you pay, another one. And so on. These small situations are just a few examples.
Microservices represent an essential function of an application and each one runs independently and can function or even fail without compromising the others.
Microservices are nothing more than an architectural and organizational approach for developing software and applications. The software in question is made up of small independent services that communicate via well-defined APIs. Therefore, they are self-contained services.
A microservices architecture facilitates scalability and makes application development more agile. The characteristics of this architectural approach make the time of introduction of new resources in the market to be accelerated, which contributes to the emergence of innovations.
Benefits of Microservices
Microservices stand out greatly because of one very interesting feature: they are specialized. This means that each service is designed to have a set of resources and is dedicated to solving a particular problem. If there is a need to add more code to a service at some point, the service can be broken down into smaller services to handle the increased complexity.
As we have already mentioned, microservices have autonomous components. In other words, development, deployment, operation, and scalability can be done without compromising the other services. One does not need to share code or implementation with any other.
- Scalability - each service can be independently scaled to meet the demand of the application resource. Increases the accuracy of the required scaling and cost of a resource while maintaining availability at all times.
- Resilience - increased resilience against failure. Applications can face total service failure with degraded functionality, without having to stop the entire application.
- Agility - orchestration of small autonomous teams solely responsible for their own services. Acting in smaller circumstances, with autonomy, makes development cycles more agile.
- Reuse - because they are small, well-defined modules, it is possible for teams to use services for a variety of purposes. Applications can be reused by creating resources without writing code.
- Freedom - teams free to decide which tool is best to deal with specific problems. Possibility to choose what is most suitable for each type of function.
- Ease - possibility of continuous integration and delivery. In this way it is feasible to try out new ideas without major problems in case they don't work out. Low cost, high level of experimentation, and room for innovation.
To be modern is to be always ready for the future
We know that companies, more and more, are born digital and need to have the agility to keep up with this medium. In other words, it is no longer a differentiator. Any business can create a digital ecosystem, but needs to seamlessly connect systems, devices, applications, and partners.
However, these connections are only possible thanks to APIs, integration and microservices. Software AG's webMethods platform helps you manage, in a modern way, all these elements so that your company can do what seemed impossible.
It is now possible to innovate by developing new business models enabled by a connected digital ecosystem.
You no longer have to start from scratch. The modern architecture we offer makes it possible to scale applications and systems reliably. And it doesn't stop there, as you can still achieve digital transformation and combine existing resources with other technologies to create new digital products.

Develop with DevOps
webMethods provides DevOps support and allows you to build and deploy integrations using your organization's CI/CD processes.
Make it easy to create integrations
With an intuitive user interface, designing, building, and deploying workflows for cloud and on-premises applications have become much easier tasks.
Integrations in a single platform
Move to integrate applications, clouds, legacy systems, big data, and IoT data. Connect what you need to with webMethods.
Your company will be able to solve innovation problems with integration solutions.
Microservices and APIs reshape IT needs. On the other hand, organizations need an open and flexible platform to be able to make all things connect and work together, without the need to invest in a whole new IT infrastructure.
Your business will do all of this much more quickly and efficiently. Since data is a fundamental tool for the success of your campaigns, having access to a significant number of reliable sources will make all the difference.
A modern enterprise application integration architecture allows you to develop solutions ranging from low-code to high-productivity integrations.
Your data will be free to increase agility and accelerate the development of innovative digital applications and services.
