Microservices: A Real World Implementation

Sep 15, 2017

When we were tasked with developing a new fisheries management solution to support and administer New Zealand’s Fisheries Quota Management System, one of the key strategic drivers was to provide a platform that could meet the evolving needs and regulations of the fisheries sector.

We discovered that the use of Microservices could offer us exactly the foundation we needed to align our software to the strategic needs of the sector. We required a style that could allow us to focus on the core yet independent functions but still enable these independent modules to be connected to other peripheral functions.

Microservices enabled us to do precisely that and furthermore it allowed us to build a solution that had optimal flexibility and scalability.

Download our e-book – Understanding Microservices to learn more about Microservices and the system we built for NZ’s highly regulated fishing industry.

Some of the topics including in our e-book:

  • A more in-depth look at what exactly Microservices architecture is
  • Why this architecture style was well suited for building a system to manage such a complex and continually evolving industry 
  • The advantages of a Microservices system and some of its complexities
  • A diagram of a typical Microservices system
  • Information about some of the tools and methods that should be used to support an efficient Microservices system
  • A real world example of Microservices implementation
  • And more…
