Migrating Monoliths to Microservices Integrating Robotic Process Automation into the Migration Approach
This research should help scholars and practitioners to manage the transition of monolithic legacy application systems to microservices and to better understand the migration process, its steps, characteristics and provide guidance on how best to approach it. We performed a systematic literature review and analyzed migration approaches presented by other researches. We propose to leverage Robotic Process Automation technology to extract business logic, create and deploy bots, which are then used to mimic microservices. In essence, this represents a novel use case, integrating RPA technology into the migration approach in order to reduce uncertainty and risk of failure.
