Scalable and Resilient Orchestration: Process Automation as an Architectural Design Choice

Microservices, Kubernetes, and geographically distributed applications can sound like an organizational nightmare. A recent (2022) poll by Kong placed the average number of microservices for a single enterprise at 184! Modern architecture patterns are great at optimizing resource usage, but what happens when you need to make a critical change to one process that spans multiple shared services? How do you monitor these services in a logical way?

Complex business processes can be difficult to manage and automate. How do you quickly implement changes while maintaining uptime? How do you introduce a new service to an existing process? How do you know when there are problems in the overall process? In this talk, we will discuss how to use Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) to orchestrate and execute complex business processes in your application. We will also see how to monitor and fix our orchestrated services on the fly. Everyone should leave this talk with a new approach to solving their orchestration complexities!
