In mid-2017, we started our work on Zeebe, a next-generation workflow engine that can scale to millions of new workflow instances started per second and is built with the microservices orchestration use case at top of mind. And we’ve seen Camunda users give in-depth presentations about how they’re using a workflow engine to orchestrate microservices in the real world.

What we were missing, though, was a broad-reaching set of data that described how members of the Camunda community as a whole were approaching their microservices architectures: the reasons they’re adopting or not adopting microservices, the supporting tools and frameworks they’re using to run their microservices, the benefits they’re reaping and challenges they’re encountering, and more.
