Enterprise software teams are accustomed to continuously adapting to changes in the technological landscape in order to better meet the needs of their organizations.
The combination of cloud computing adoption trends and the recent growth of containerization technologies has lead to a shift in mindsets regarding how enterprise applications should be architected.

To complete this transition successfully, teams must be prepared to address multiple challenges using software routing.
This paper provides an overview of the challenges related to adopting microservices including fundamental connectivity challenges, DevOps challenges, and production challenges.
