We've Opened the 2018 Microservices Orchestration Survey, and We're Looking For Your Input

Written by Mike Winters on in the Community category.

When we talk about Zeebe, we also talk a lot about the challenges that organizations face when managing business processes that span many independent microservices.

“Microservices orchestration” is a useful term for describing one potential solution to this problem. But every organization will take a different approach to a microservices architecture, and we want to be sure we have a clear understanding of what microservices orchestration means to the many different users who might benefit from Zeebe.

For example, some organizations build all of their applications based on a microservices architecture and have always operated that way, while others have a mix of microservices-based applications as well as applications that rely on a more traditional architecture, such as a monolithic architecture. Some organizations connect their microservices with an asynchronous, event-driven communication pattern, while others use synchronous, HTTP-based communication.

To learn more about how organizations are building and managing their microservices architectures and the challenges they encounter along the way, Camunda is running a microservices orchestration survey.

The survey is open to anyone with interest in this topic! You don’t need to be a Camunda or Zeebe user, and you don’t even need to be a part of team that’s working on a microservices architecture. We still want to hear from you.

You can submit your response to the survey here.

After collecting responses, we’ll publish a report summarizing the survey results. We’ll only include aggregated data in this report and no individual response data.

Here are a few other details:

  • The survey will remain open until July 30, 2018.
  • It’s possible to respond to the survey anonymously if you’d like.
  • Almost all questions in the survey are optional, and you can skip questions that you prefer not to answer.

As a token of our appreciation, we’ll be drawing names of a few respondents to give away free passes to your choice of CamundaCon 2018 in Berlin (our annual user conference) or a Camunda classroom training, where you’ll learn more about Camunda BPM and BPMN.

We hope to hear from you, and we’ll report back once we’ve analyzed the survey results.
