Paradigm Shift : Increasing abstraction from infrastructure

Powerful hardware, Distributed Computing

Virtualization abstracted you from hardware (IBM LPARs, then modern hypervisors for other operating systems)
Containerization abstracted you from the operating system, (create multiple isolated components on a single operating system)

Serverless architecture abstracts you from the process/thread

Paradigm Shift : From monolithic to microservice application

Microservices typifies the benefits sought from modern architectural techniques

  • Agility: Faster iteration cycles, bounded contexts, autonomous teams
  • Scalability: Elastic scalability, workload orchestration, cloud infrastructure
  • Resilience: Minimized dependencies, discrete failover, fail fast, start fast

Paradigm Shift : Decentralized Ownership

Integration has become an obstacle to success because traditional, centralized and systematic integration approaches cannot deal with the velocity , volume and pace of business innovation.

Decentralized ownership, Empowering teams,Agile methods
