Microservices and CpaaS
In a world of constant technological change where consumers are continuously modifying the way they interact with their devices, it’s indispensable to count on a platform capable of adapting to those changes. It’s for this purpose that we have microservices and CPaaS (Communication Platform as a Service).
The architecture of microservices arises as the need to deal with the complexities of monolithic systems and decompose them into smaller containers. In other words, to turn a complex platform that is difficult to manage, with many different business segments and distinct objectives (i.e., payment portals, logistics, marketing, etc.) into a number of parallel functions that can easily interact with each other through API gateways. This way we can get multiple interdisciplinary development teams to work simultaneously on the core business without affecting each other, rendering versatility, agility and organic growth.
Netflix, Coca-Cola and Amazon are some of the companies that have adopted the microservices architecture. To learn more about microservices visit the Amazon Web Services website.
The CPaaS (Communication Platform as a Service) platform is a perfect partner for microservices due to the fact that its simple connectivity API can take these microservices to a higher level, providing them with a cutting edge communications suite. For example, 2FA, Number Masking, SMS or USSD Services are only a sample of the functionality that can be added to the microservices architectures, allowing companies to build software solutions as if building with Legos, without needing to know the complexities behind each component used.

At Eolos we help our clients build bridges between their systems and CPaaS, developing and implementing all the necessary solutions so that the benefit of including a communications suite in their products is just a means to an end and not a complex development that limits their product’s potential or shifts the focus of their business.
