Today’s business world demands more agility, flexibility, and efficiency from its professionals, especially actuaries and accountants. Enter microservices, a paradigm shift in how software is designed and interacted with. At Data Symphony, we’re pioneering the way forward, making the power of microservices accessible right from Excel.
Microservices represent a departure from traditional monolithic software designs. They are:
- Independent software solutions: Each microservice has its specific role, operating independently yet in harmony with others.
- Available to specific business users: This ensures the right tool for the right job.
- Enabling frequent business requirements: Be it daily or monthly; microservices are tailored to meet recurrent operational needs.
- Automation: Microservices excel in automating recurring daily tasks, reducing manual input and error.
- Ownership: They are owned and supported by small, agile teams who ensure their optimum performance.
- Expansion: As businesses grow and evolve, so can their microservices. Adaptability is built into their DNA.
- Cloud Integration: Hosted on platforms like AWS, microservices are accessible from various platforms, including Excel.
Benefits of using microservices
- Reusability: They can be utilized across various applications, promoting consistency and efficiency.
- Scalability: They scale seamlessly, ensuring performance regardless of the workload.
- Fault isolation: An issue with one microservice won’t impact others, ensuring consistent uptime.
- Technology agnostic: Regardless of underlying technologies, microservices work in tandem.
- Rapid deployment and updates: Changes can be made quickly without system downtimes.
- Productivity: Their intuitive nature and efficiency result in improved team productivity.
- Simplicity: Microservices are easy to understand and modify, reducing the technical debt.
For actuaries and accountants, Excel remains a beloved tool. Data Symphony’s microservices integrate seamlessly with:
- Excel UI: Accessible and familiar.
- Multiple UIs: Be it web interfaces, windows forms, or others, microservices adapt.
- Security: Multiple layers ensure data integrity and access controls.
- Documentation: Accessible right from the interface, simplifying onboarding and reference.
- Feedback: Users can easily provide feedback, aiding continuous improvement.
- Deployment: Automatic deployment ensures users always have the latest version without hassle.
Growth is inevitable, and so:
- Service requests: Users can request new services right from their interface.
- Prioritization: Frequent and critical requests can be prioritized for faster development.
