Organizations are rapidly moving towards cloud adoption. They are also looking at microservices and an agile way of development, deployment, and testing. With such rapid adoption, large organizations are facing many challenges. In large organizations, generally, there are multiple projects running simultaneously. All these projects would typically have a large number of microservices. This results in hundreds of microservices being under development and a number of individuals and teams with varying degrees of skills, expertise, and experience working on those.
The first thing that companies complain about is the lack of proper tagging. With so many microservices being developed, it becomes impossible to trace them without proper tagging. Allocating costs to different projects is also done with the help of tags. Project names, application names, and environment names like DEV, QA, etc., among others, go a long way in managing resources on the cloud better.
