Software architecture decisions can have lasting repercussions for both IT and the business. And microservices — a flexible, modern approach to app development — is rapidly emerging as the architecture of choice. Each service has a limited scope, concentrates on a particular task and is highly independent. This setup allows IT managers and developers to build systems in a modular way. Microservices are a type of software architecture where large applications are made up of small, self-contained units working together through APIs that are not dependent on a specific language.
