What is Microservice Intelligence?

Microservice Intelligence discovers and catalogs your service landscape from your DevOps toolchain. Bringing data from various sources together, we surface development metrics, ownership structures, and dependencies. This helps DevOps teams, SRE's, and engineering leadership to better understand and navigate their microservices to improve service readiness, react faster on incidents and build more reliable software.

How does it work?

Cataloging your service landscape works with three simple steps:

  1. Discover your data from different sources all over your engineering tool chain - e.g. leverage our out-of-the box integrations for GitHub, Jenkins, GitHub Actions, Azure Pipelines, and Kubernetes or use our Integration API. Read more about our integrations here

  2. Search, filter, and create reports to establish transparency - Microservice Intelligence is built based on the well-proven LeanIX platform, serving 1000s of daily users with a shared & collaborative access to architecture data. Learn more here

  3. Support core processes on top of the data - once the data is discovered, LeanIX provides portals, webhooks, dashboards, and more functionality to track development metrics, receive notifications in case of open source license violations, and more.

Who uses it?

Integrated into your tech stack, Microservice Intelligence provides benefits to a variety of users:

  • DevOps engineers: Easily search & find service documentation
  • Site Reliability Engineers: Define and monitor SLAs, SLOs, SLIs, and error budgets
  • CTOs: Make resource allocation decisions based on metrics and report insights
  • QA Testing: Professionalize and shift-left your testing by knowing which APIs require what form of testing

What use cases exist?

Once you have populated Microservice Intelligence with data from disconnected sources of your ecosystem you are able to work on the following use cases:

  • Discover and catalog your microservices
  • Open-source license management
  • API catalog and data flows
  • Security and vulnerability management
  • Capability modeling and roadmap planning
  • Technology scouting & adoption scorecards

Why choose MI?

We have been there – done that: Our cloud native-born company struggled with complexity once our service landscape passed the 20 mark bar. The complexity the services introduce was no longer feasible to be managed by storing information in the heads of our dear colleagues or on spreadsheets. And since we are driven by automation, we began building Microservice Intelligence to help us automate service documentation so that we can make information visible throughout the organization, facilitate developers to obtain it themselves and act on the generated insights.

Also, we are very lucky to have customers and others share their experiences in a vital community, e.g. at our conferences

We believe that Microservice Intelligence can help others as well as it helped us – so feel free to try it out yourself and provide feedback at [email protected]
