Up for Debate: Does Microservices Simplify or Complicate?


Think About Your Audience Before Choosing a Webinar Title

Sponsored by NGINX (part of F5)

Wednesday, November 18, 2020
12:00 p.m. UTC / 2:00 p.m. CEST

Most application development teams have been through crossroads in their path to modernizing their app infrastructures. Should they stay monolithic or migrate to a microservices environment? If only it could be solved with a “pros and cons” sheet of paper, but it is not that simple. There are multiple layers that need to be considered, each with its own set of benefits and challenges. Up for debate: Does microservices simplify or complicate things?

In this panel discussion, we will have a friendly debate between two technical experts that have experienced deploying both monolithic and microservices environments. They will:

  • Shed light on the pros and cons of deploying microservices if you have an existing monolithic infrastructure that is working
  • Discuss whether “To cloud” or not “to cloud”
  • Go over the fundamental layers of application development: ADC, security, monitoring and management
  • Provide insight to finding the strategy that works for your business
