We’re seeing an explosion of new architectures. These range from Big Data architectures to microservices. There are almost too many to keep up with.
As an Exec, you could be tempted to pass these new architectures off as engineers reinventing the wheel. Engineers just love changing things around and trying out new technologies.
The reality is that these new architectures are solving real business problems. Most teams, for example, are spending 40%-90% of their time just dealing with their current architectural problems. Even small to medium improvements with new architectures can provide massive efficiency gains for teams.
The problem is that technical teams don’t know how to talk about these architectures in business terms. In this talk, I will cover some common new architectures and how they’re helping teams be more efficient.
