The design paradigm of enterprise solutions has changes dramatically over the last couple of years. Why is SOA not the big buzz any longer and how come can a much simpler technology gain all the focus? Microservices is easy to work with and runs in any environment on IBM i. From node.js and JAVA to Python and RPG. You can expand and deploy to any platform – on premise – In the cloud. It’s so flexible!!
