In my project we start the day with one SOD script which does some start of the day functionalities. Then it generates events on its completion which triggers few more processes which start data loading. And such a chain process keeps on running, sometimes by event generation or sometimes doing status updates in database.

All processes are independent services developed in different languages.

Is this kind of architecture categorized as Micro services architecture ?

    It is unclear why you need to know this. If your software suits its purpose, does it really matter whether or not it meets the "legal" definition of a Microservice? – Robert Harvey Feb 12 at 16:51

    @RobertHarvey For seeking advice and information using the right keywords? For better understanding strength and weaknesses of the current architecture? For writing a cv using the right terms? For hiring the specialist with the appropriate skills? would it change the answer? – Christophe Feb 12 at 18:30

    @Christophe: The real question is one of the ones you proposed, not "is this a microservice." Otherwise, the answer is merely "yes" or "no." – Robert Harvey Feb 12 at 20:44
