Why monolithic architecture faces extinction and the lean, micro-service model that will replace it
Don’t freak out, but… hotel technology as you know it is facing extinction. At least this is true for the legacy property management systems (PMS). They have grown too big, require too many resources to maintain, and are inefficient. They are dinosaurs.
There will be a new solution to succeed them. Something sturdy, yet light, efficient, and adaptable. Something hotels can actually work with and tailor to their needs.

Think of it as the compact descendants of the dinosaurs—the birds of technology.
