Microservices are more and more popular. As a result, some companies started to believe that microservices are the solution to all of their problems and rush to adopt microservices without sufficient knowledge about the impacts. Most of the time they expect to decrease their maintenance effort or to ease the deployment process. However, re-architecting a system to microservices is not always beneficial. In this work we propose a work-plan to identify a decision framework that supports practitioners in the understanding of possible migration based benefits and issues. This will lead to more reasoned decisions and mitigate the risk of migration.
