Only when we have a complete understanding of the microservices ecosystem can we begin to weigh the pros and cons of a large-scale enterprise migration.
Legacy systems are difficult to maintain and enhance during development phases, and difficult to scale and manage at runtime. The webinars guide developers and architects to correct approaches for refactoring enterprise systems in order to take advantage of modern architectural approaches.
