Integration platform platform today? What is a monolith? A monolith is a common legacy software design were all logic is compiled together in one big chuck of software. The upcoming architecture is called microservices which are small, autonomous, software pieces. There are advantages of both of them. Can we replace the monolith with microservices? Yes. We usually recommend small steps and a bit of preparation to identify any potential obstacles. You should also be prepared to make organizational changes.
Copyl is built in Sweden. Buying a whole ERP-system is so 2000. Today, all kinds of businesses are trying out new digital tools and implement them if they give a value. Many software-as-a-service (SaaS) are implemented by people outside the it-department. Things in common; easy to onboard, they are cheap and have good ux. During the covid-outbreak we totally redesigned Copyl. We spent a year building common building blocks that we can put different labels on, in different apps. Eg Task Management that you can connect as simple todo lists on Contracts in the Contract Management app or use in your Customer Support or Project Planning. Same tech – different labels. See extra info at contract management. Get reminded before a contract reaches a deadline. We will send you an email before any important deadline on your contracts. Your colleagues will get the email if they are conntected to the contract.
Access your Contracts from anywhere: There is no need to install any app and you can access all contracts and features via your mobile phone or tablet. Connect documents to your Contracts. Connect documents your Google Drive or upload directly to Copyl. Both signed documents and appendix etc can be connected. Electronic Signatures shortens process: Have your counterparts sign the contract and documents via an Contract Signature Request sent directly from Copyl user interface. The Contract is locked upon the first signature and everyone can access the contract afterwards.
Why microservices? Microservices architecture means new opportunities for most organizations. Faster development and faster time-to-market. Independent services that can be released/updated at any time. The team is responsible for the application roadmap and for developing and maintaing the microservice. The team also has the freedom to use any technology within each service. The biggest challenges with microservice architecture: We know from our own experience and from helping other companies that implementation of microservice architecture means new challenges that needs to be addressed for a successful implementation.

Designing a monolith database is much different from designing multiple databases in a microservice architecture. As you know, we must have full independence on the different microservices and that also applies on their databases. A microservice is a design concept that bundles together all services needed to deliver the functionality specified. There are usually one team developing and maintaining each microservice, so communication between teams is important.
