Today's system migration focuses on modernizing legacy and monolithic systems towards microservices' architectures. This study aims at understanding if and how quality attributes improvement are explicitly driving the migration process. We designed and conducted a systematic literature review on the topic. We started from over 2.000 potentially relevant research papers. We applied a selection procedure resulting in 58 selected research papers over the last six years. Our study revealed the following main findings: i) while still limited, quality attributes-driven migration is getting some attention, especially during the microservices identification phase; ii) we related the migration phases to the subset of quality attributes found in the papers accepted for this systematic review.

Abstract

Today's system migration focuses on modernizing legacy and monolithic systems towards microservices' architectures. This study aims at understanding if and how quality attributes improvement are explicitly driving the migration process. We designed and conducted a systematic literature review on the topic. We started from over 2.000 potentially relevant research papers. We applied a selection procedure resulting in 58 selected research papers over the last six years. Our study revealed the following main findings: i) while still limited, quality attributes-driven migration is getting some attention, especially during the microservices identification phase; ii) we related the migration phases to the subset of quality attributes found in the papers accepted for this systematic review.
