Over time, monolithic software systems have tendency to become overgrown and tightly integrated. One way to improve the overall architecture is to migrate the monolith to newer paradigms, in particular using microservices. The challenge lies in determining which functionality to decouple from the intertwined and connected code, and how to weave them into the grand migration plan. We will present an approach using graph theory to identify areas of a monolithic application that can break dependencies and decompose it into modular monoliths. We will demonstrate how graph theory concepts, such as centrality and minimum node cut, can provide insights to help drive decisions for a migration strategy.
