Service Quality Management and Microservices: a Complimentary eBook

I don’t have to tell you that Microservices have changed software deployment forever. They change the way we design, develop and deploy applications. Microservice applications are easier to scale and more suited to an agile, continuous delivery process.

It’s a double-edged sword, though. For every advancement in process, there’s a new barrier in the ability to manage the service quality of the individual services and, more importantly, the applications.

Understanding how to manage service quality in this new age of microservices applications takes more than just re-purposing APM or Transaction monitoring software.

That topic is explored deeply in our new eBook Managing Service Quality in the Age of Microservices.

The eBook looks at the new techniques and technologies that are used to create Microservice applications, why they create challenges in managing service quality, and what you’ll need to look for in your toolset to help DevOps and IT Operations deliver high quality, highly scalable applications.
