Microservices mindmap

When you are fairly new within the Microservices land, there are a lot of terms fired at you. So also for my own understanding i have made a mindmap. I think it has a good status now, so that i can share it with you. As always feedback is very welcome !


You can download the mindmap here.

  1. This is very innovative! Couple of things ESB was not visible. Service Mesh could take more central view in communucatio@n

  3. Simply Excellent! - Where does BPM falls? - Do you have plans to cover it?

    1. Hello Sravanthi, thanks ! About BPM, good question. I think there are different views on it. Here are mine:
      1) BPM is inside the Microservice, because it should be functionally be together
      2) The whole process covers more Microservices and then Choreography is used to trigger other Microservices with event. In this case the BPM is implicitly covered over Microservices.

      So that's why i put Choreography within the map. But this my view on it of course

    2. Right.This is a cool one on Micro services. BPM(OR a typical BPEL process) is an example of a process orchestration which would invoke/consume micro service(s) to fulfil the functionality required by the process. Anyway, thanks for sharing the mindmap. Very useful one.

  4. Excellent coverage.
    Data can be more refined to include BI/Files and legacy stuff as they are still in use largely in big corps.
    Not sure if I have missed it somewhere as I am zooming it on my mobile :)
    Great work ��

    1. There is some data stuff in it, but BI will be another topic. I want to create a mindmap around information management as well.

  5. Hi,

    Can you share a more sharper image, not able see lot of things clearly. An HD image will help, in taking a print out and sticking at peoples desk.

  8. This is simply super stuff. Covers 360 degree view of micro services and a good illustration that everywhere MS fits.

    1. Thanks Bala ! But a note on that MS everywhere fits: you should always consider this because MS does not fit everywhere. In case a simple single application is good enough, dont do it. This is of course a simplified example but for me MS is just another "tool" within the architecture toolbox ;)
