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

In recent months, we’ve seen more and more users building solutions with Camunda BPM to address microservices orchestration challenges. The external task clients, newly added in version 7.9.0, is one example of how Camunda BPM has evolved to meet user needs in this area.

Camunda is running a survey about microservices orchestration so that we can learn more about how you’re approaching this problem and how Camunda can help. We’d love to hear your feedback.

You can submit your response to the survey here.

Every organization takes a different approach to a microservices architecture, and we want to be sure we have a detailed understanding of what microservices orchestration means to the range of different types of users who are thinking about this problem.

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 some more traditional architecture. Some organizations connect their microservices with an asynchronous, event-driven communication pattern, while others use synchronous, HTTP-based communication.

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

After collecting responses, we’ll publish a report summarizing the survey results. We’ll only include aggregated data in this report–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, so you can skip questions 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.
