When you have a web app owned by several teams - very soon you will need to handle issues like: quality, ownership and autonomy. Using the "micro services architecture" hammer is not that trivia when your nail is a monolithic web application. How do you handle: session management, security, cross apps links and user experience ?

Why did you build it that way? For historical reasons.

How to get from the mess to a nice MicroApplication system? Salami or Scrambled egg?
Implementing a proxy in front of all the MicroApps that handles the authentication, logging, monitoring, etc.
