With the impacts of the pandemic still lingering, manufacturers are continuing to migrate the core business functions to digital. A study by Sapio Research found that 51% of manufacturers have already invested in eCommerce capabilities.
Creating digital channels that provide an intuitive user experiences is now a top priority for most manufacturers. As manufacturers move in this direction, how do they implement a multitouch online platform that has an effortless, seamless experience?
Why is Now the Time to Transition from Monolithic Technologies
A typical monolithic platform consists of a large database, client-facing interface, and server-side interface. As a result, monolithic applications tend to come with excessively large code bases. Due to their connective nature, making a small change to a single function may require testing of the entire platform to ensure no other feature has been impacted.
In addition, monolithic applications often require an excessively large team of developers to operate, without any single individual fully understanding the application in its entirety. This monolithic approach is not only quickly becoming outdated, but it is extremely costly, time-consuming, and inefficient.
