Modularization: The Foundation of Microservices and Monoliths


Eberhard Wolff
INNOQ, Fellow

Eberhard Wolff has 15+ years of experience as an architect and consultant - often on the intersection of business and technology. He is a Fellow at INNOQ in Germany. As a speaker, he has given talks at international conferences and as an author, he has written more than 100 articles and books e.g. about Microservices and Continuous Delivery. His technological focus is on modern architectures – often involving Cloud, Continuous Delivery, DevOps, or Microservices.

Dividing a huge system into modules is the only way to develop large systems. After Microservices became popular, people realized that the structure of a system is very important. Some took these ideas and applied them to monoliths. The basic concept of modularization is not new, however. These talks show the fundamental concepts and how they apply to microservices and monoliths alike. Because the architecture and the split into modules are so very important, the talk, therefore, shows basic concepts and prerequisites for successful projects.
