Microservices: A Paradigm Shift for Fast Growing E-Commerce Businesses

April 24, 2018
By Victor Terpstra

Companies such as Amazon, eBay, Netflix, Google and Uber already rely on an architectural principle called Microservices: Small services which are individually developed, deployed and managed and which communicate via standardized APIs.

Instead of having one monolithic application containing all business logic, a flexible network of Microservices handles all complexity. Developers can work on small functional chunks rather than having to understand many millions of lines of code, resulting in better quality as well easier testing and adapting.

Using examples by Zalando, The Gilt Groupe and REWE, we will show how retailers benefit from switching to Microservices and give some practical guidance regarding the evaluation and introduction of this methodology.
