The Thing About MicroServices

The microservices approach to functionality is really what I was after in MOCA. But, back in 1993 when we designed it, we just did not have the technology to describe this or a structural way to do it.

So, over the years, MOCA components (and it is worse in most other WMS offerings) have too many dependencies on other parts of the system. These dependencies and complexities inevitably lead to higher costs, longer development cycles and evolves into a situation like trying to push a snowball up a hill (it eventually crushes you under gravity).
