Service oriented architecture Vs. Microservices : Which is better?

by Ranjeet Kumar SEO and Digital Marketer

If you happen to work in the IT sector or the cloud computing field, you are probably aware of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) vs microservices debate. After all, everyone is talking about microservices and agile applications these days. Understanding the most reliable way to develop and deploy applications is an important concern for any data-driven business today, as it is the future of smartphones & portable devices. Having an option of service-oriented architecture (SOA) and microservices provides valuable flexibility for building and running applications that traditional monolithic approaches don’t. However, it becomes difficult to distinguish the differences between the two to identify which is better for your organization. Microservices arrange an application as a series of distinct, single-purpose services, on the other hand, SOA is a group of modular services that communicate with each other to support applications and their deployment. Both approaches have significant differences in architecture, component sharing, data governance, communication, and other elements. 

At first glimpse, both approaches sound very similar. In some ways, they both are different from a traditional, monolithic architecture in which every service has its responsibility. However, both are scalable and agile approaches.  Even with having so much in common,  a closer look at the two approaches shows important differences.

What is service-oriented architecture (SOA)?

Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is an enterprise-related approach to software development that makes use of reusable software components or services.  Each service involves code and data integrations that are required to execute a specific business function. For instance, checking a customer’s credit, signing in to a website, or processing a lease application. The SOA interfaces provide loose coupling, which means that they can be called without the knowledge of how the integration is implemented underneath. Due to this loose coupling and the way services are published, developers can save a lot of time by just reusing cross-platform custom mobile app development tools in other applications across the company.  Read full blog here – Service oriented architecture Vs.
