When we talk about Zeebe, we also talk a lot about the challenges that organizations face when managing business processes that span many independent microservices.
“Microservices orchestration” is a useful term for describing one potential solution to this problem. But every organization will take a different approach to a microservices architecture, and we want to be sure we have a clear understanding of what microservices orchestration means to the many different users who might benefit from Zeebe.
For example, some organizations build all of their applications based on a microservices architecture and have always operated that way, while others have a mix of microservices-based applications as well as applications that rely on a more traditional architecture, such as a monolithic architecture. Some organizations connect their microservices with an asynchronous, event-driven communication pattern, while others use synchronous, HTTP-based communication.
To learn more about how organizations are building and managing their microservices architectures and the challenges they encounter along the way, Camunda is running a microservices orchestration survey.
The survey is open to anyone with interest in this topic! You don’t need to be a Camunda or Zeebe user, and you don’t even need to be a part of team that’s working on a microservices architecture. We still want to hear from you.
After collecting responses, we’ll publish a report summarizing the survey results. We’ll only include aggregated data in this report and no individual response data.
Here are a few other details:
- The survey will remain open until July 30, 2018.
- It’s possible to respond to the survey anonymously if you’d like.
- Almost all questions in the survey are optional, and you can skip questions that you prefer not to answer.
As a token of our appreciation, we’ll be drawing names of a few respondents to give away free passes to your choice of CamundaCon 2018 in Berlin (our annual user conference) or a Camunda classroom training, where you’ll learn more about Camunda BPM and BPMN.
We hope to hear from you, and we’ll report back once we’ve analyzed the survey results.
