Data for: Drivers and Barriers for Microservice Adoption in the German Software Industry

Knoche, Holger; Hasselbring, Wilhelm

Microservices are an architectural style for software which currently receives a lot of attention in both industry and academia. Several companies employ microservice architectures with great success, and there is a wealth of blog posts praising their advantages. Especially so-called Internet-scale systems use them to satisfy their enormous scalability requirements and to rapidly deliver new features to their users.
However, microservices are not only popular with large, Internet-scale systems. Many traditional companies are also considering whether microservices are a viable option for their applications. However, these companies may have other motivations to employ microservices, and see other barriers which may prevent them from adopting microservices. Furthermore, these drivers and barriers may differ among industry sectors.
This dataset contains the questions and results of a survey on drivers and barriers for microservice adoption among professionals in the German software industry. In addition to overall drivers and barriers, we particularly focused on the use of microservices to modernize existing software, with special emphasis on implications for runtime performance and transactionality.
