Dealing with monolithic applications often caused development organizations to get stuck in the muck, resulting in slower, less-reliable applications and longer and longer development schedules. The companies who create those applications, as a result, end up losing customers and money.
The muck is not inevitable. You can rebuild and re-architect your applications to scale with your company’s needs, not against it. Using a microservice-based application architecture is an increasingly popular technique for building applications that can scale without miring your organization in the monolithic muck.
