About the Whitepaper

When enterprises implemented ecommerce platforms in the early 2000s, the monolith architecture delivered. It was one, lightweight and unified application. The typical, and most essential features and functionalities were pre-packaged.

But today, responding to customer and market demands has became more complex and delivery expectations more urgent. We’re witnessing a shift in ecommerce; enterprises are turning to microservices to increase their agility and stay ahead of customer needs. But how can enterprises adopt microservices architectures - particularly if their ecommerce solution is currently being deployed via a legacy, monolith platform?

This whitepaper helps enterprises identify the right time to migrate, and shares the best monolith to microservices migration process to adopt.
