Monolithic to Microservice to ... Are we rolling back?

Companies migrated to microservices for various reasons, often following the hype or hoping to find the silver bullet. While multiple companies had experienced important improvements in their velocity and team independence, others still needed to achieve their expected benefits. Recently, there has been a trend of migrating microservice systems to other technologies. Serverless first, but also data meshes and, in extreme cases, even rolling back to monolithic systems. In this talk, we will discuss the most recent trends in microservices and, in particular, why they moved out from traditional microservices versus other technologies.
