Living in the first derivative: Architecting for velocity
Who is this presentation for?
No organization ever complained that its IT department was delivering too fast. However, as technologies evolve more quickly and product cycle times keep shorting, it’s difficult for any development team or IT organization to be fast enough.
These organizations try many things to move faster, from adopting lean and DevOps approaches to moving to the cloud to working weekends or paying bigger bonuses. Slowly many organizations realize that increasing velocity is about more than just moving a bit faster. It takes a fundamentally different mind-set—one that looks at the first derivative. Gregor Hohpe takes a fresh look at why moving faster isn’t just about speeding things up and dissects systems and organizational architectures that are built for economies of speed.
What you'll learn
- Discover a new viewpoint on what it means to move faster
- Understand how to design organizations for velocity and value-oriented systems architecture
Gregor Hohpe is an advisor at ArchitectElevator.com, where he advises CTOs and technology leaders in the transformation of their organization and IT infrastructure. Riding the architect elevator from the engine room to the penthouse, he connects corporate strategy with technical implementation by making complex topics engaging and approachable without compromising technical accuracy. Previously, Gregor was a technical director at Google Cloud’s Office of the CTO and a chief architect at Allianz, one of world’s largest insurance companies. Having established accelerated innovation and complexity and cost reduction as architecture goals, he oversaw a global data center consolidation and deployed the first on-premises cloud and software delivery platform. He’s a coauthor of the seminal book Enterprise Integration Patterns, which is widely cited as the reference vocabulary for asynchronous messaging solutions. His book 37 Things One Architect Knows about IT Transformation tells stories from the trenches of IT transformation, while his articles have been featured in Best Software Writing by Joel Spolsky and 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know.
