Microservices can help any organization achieve its goal of increasing agility by addressing critical factors such as improving team autonomy, reducing time to market, cost-effectively scaling for load, and avoiding complete outages of the applications. As organizations break their monolith applications into microservices, one of the major hurdles they encounter is identifying database dependencies.
Database sharing can be a complex and time-consuming challenge to solve. Databases do not allow you to define what is shared and what is not. While modifying a schema to better serve one microservice, you might inadvertently break how another microservice uses that same database.
