76 Percent of Enterprise Organisations Consider Rearchitecting Apps for Microservices a High or Critical Priority

Research from Ensono, a leading hybrid IT services provider, and Wipro Limited, a leading global information technology, consulting and business process services company, has found that enterprise adoption of microservices is continuing to increase as businesses transform themselves to compete in the digital era. The new research found that 76 per cent of organisations now consider microservices to be a high or critical priority and only 4 per cent do not have this on their agenda at all.  The research was conducted by Forrester Research and quizzed 153 IT decision makers at director level or above across the USA and Europe. 

 

Oliver Presland, VP of Global Product Management at Ensono, said: “There was a time when monolithic architecture was the standard approach to software development in enterprise, but we are seeing an increasing focus from our clients in using a microservices architecture-first approach, either rearchitecting from the ground-up or adapting their existing applications. In a high-velocity world of high customer expectation, technology has become a true competitive advantage and organisations need to act smart and move fast. They need the agility to adapt and pivot. Microservices helps break complex software into smaller, manageable pieces and as our research shows, it’s now the default architecture for delivering that required agility.”

 

The research also found that many organisations are struggling with lengthy deployment cycles (29 per cent) and have trouble meeting delivery dates (16 per cent).  It is little surprise then that coinciding with the switch from monolithic software strategies is the ever-increasing importance being placed on DevOps that speeds up deployment cycles in order to deliver a better experience. 82 per cent consider DevOps to be of high or critical importance to their organisations over the next year.

 

Microservices and DevOps come together to deliver real ROI and operational efficiencies. Organisations like Amazon, Netflix, eBay, Facebook, Uber, Groupon, Google all use microservices architecture.

 

Additionally, this trend towards microservices coincides with an increase in cloud-first strategies with 69 per cent of enterprise organisations currently expanding or upgrading their implementation.

 

Oliver Presland continues: “New technologies such as serverless, containerisation and microservices are bringing us into a new generation of maximising cloud-first strategies with cloud-native architecture. This exploits the advantages of the cloud computing delivery model and many of our clients are moving to this approach, while optimising their legacy infrastructure.”
