Preparing For a Future Microservices Journey Using Wardley Maps (Talk, Main Conference)
by Susanne Kaiser

The journey to Microservices can be very challenging. Identifying proper boundaries, integrating services, and handling infrastructure and operational complexities that Microservices come with can be very overwhelming.

How not to loose sight and to cope with those challenges and still delivering user and business value? One approach could be to focus on that part of your business that gives most competitive advantage - your core domain - and outsource undifferentiating commodities to utility suppliers.

Domain Driven Design combined with Wardley Maps can help us to understand the problem domain and to focus on the core domain.

In this talk Susanne will show how Domain Driven Design and Wardley Maps can be used together to visualise how a value chain can evolve during a Microservices journey and keeping focus on your core domain.
