Microservices architectures are a departure from traditional Service Oriented Architecture (SOA). Influenced by Domain Driven Design (DDD), microservices architectures aim to help business analysts and enterprise architects develop scalable applications that embody flexibility for new functionalities as businesses develop, such as scenarios in the Internet of Things (IoT) domain.
