"A microservice catalog like System-Z simplifies understanding..." /via @spotify #readingToday

A great thing about the freedom that a microservices architecture gives to teams and individuals is that it allows the decentralized creation of many small components. This improves the speed of experimentation and learning, but leads to an increased volume of software, which in turn makes it hard to understand the software ecosystem: what should be out there, who owns it, and how does it fit into the bigger picture? Can I deprecate it? A microservice catalog like System-Z simplifies this understanding, and also serves as a great base for other tooling that works across the board with your backend systems.

Microservices allow you to scale your development organization and build more microservices. A cataloguing system can form the foundation of other tooling.
