Customers are an asset for any company and various services provided by companies need architectural efficiency to handle data and connections. The original architecture used standalone systems from which organizations have now moved on to cloud-based diverse systems. Cloud systems enable handling thousands of customers at the same time without putting all the load on a single server. However, technological advancements have bought out the problems in cloud architectures when a single monolithic unit handles various tasks.
Now organizations are moving towards a microservices-enabled headless architecture to take advantage of the flexibility and independence to modify existing systems. Microservices are capable of providing fine-tuned control to all aspects of the systems to make the customer experience better.
Salesforce Cloud Commerce architecture has been a primary agent that satisfies many sizable organizations for their services. It provides many utilities that enable companies to hold their e-commerce stores and units. Companies are gearing towards microservices-based architectures. Salesforce with Microservices can significantly contribute to your architecture.
Any organization looking to migrate its platform to microservices enabled systems; need to consider a few factors to make the migration process more efficient and streamlined.
The first step in your planning should be to decide which component you want to change. This decision should be inspired by the technical requirements and business strategies that you have in place. There are various components of an e-commerce store that you can influence with microservices
To implement a microservices-based architecture, technicians must realize that they cannot instantly change the entire architecture from salesforce to microservices-based. They must switch from the previous component to an enabled microservices element by using an API gateway. These gateways enable you to replace the endpoints from salesforce to your new service when they go online. Furthermore, technicians may need to design a system that can carefully monitor the interfacing and connection between each of the components as the organization implements more and more microservices. After creating a middle layer, the next step is to import the data from Salesforce to microservices architecture. Also, based on the framework which you have used to create your microservice, you can import the downloaded data to your new microservice.
After you have created your desired microservices, it is important to analyze the performance and debug it wherever necessary. Technicians need to be careful about the connections between components and how they are maintained to avoid problems to potential and standing customers. Then, it becomes more important to maintain the quality of services that are being provided through the microservices architecture by doing regular load tests and more.
All in all, we can agree that microservices-based architecture can help in accelerating the e-commerce business if implemented intelligently. Although it may be hard to make a few initial migrations, it is a better strategy all over in the long run. It provides a fine-tuned control over each system and promises a better experience to the consumer that the company is catering to. Get in touch with Royal Cyber Salesforce experts to know more.
