Migrating Monoliths to Microservices Integrating Robotic Process Automation into the Migration Approach


This research should help scholars and practitioners to manage the transition of monolithic legacy application systems to microservices and to better understand the migration process, its steps, and its characteristics. It should also provide guidance on how best to approach the migration process. We performed a systematic literature review and analyzed migration approaches presented by other research. We propose leveraging Robotic Process Automation technology to extract business logic and create and deploy bots, which are then used to mimic microservices. In essence, this represents a novel use case of integrating RPA technology into the migration approach in order to reduce uncertainty and risk of failure.
