3 cloud architecture problems that need solutions

David Linthicum

For the most part, cloud architecture is not that exciting. By now we know basically what works, what does not, and the process to get to the right target architecture. This means both the meta or logical architecture and added technology to get to the physical architecture.

Which multicloud architecture will win out?

David Linthicum

As I’ve pointed out here before, with multicloud comes complexity and the challenge of operationalizing a complex architecture. You would have to be living under a rock not to notice that multicloud deployments have become the new normal, for many reasons.

Cloud architecture that avoids risk and complexity

David Linthicum

One of the truisms about cloud architecture is that there are typically 100x100 architecture solution patterns. They all work, but the majority will bring more risk, cost, and complexity than you should endure. [ The Enterprise Architecture Awards : Learn from these five winners what it takes for EA to make a real business difference. In my years of reviewing architectures and plans for the Global 2000, I’m often engaged in a struggle between “it works, doesn’t it?”

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Enterprise Architecture Enables Digital Innovation

CEB IT

In 2011, Gartner predicted that within 10 years, the majority of global enterprises would support enterprise architecture (EA) as a distinct discipline that is integral to business planning. Now, in 2020, EA has grown from a support function into a highly strategic one, responsible for designing an intelligent information architecture that supports digitalization and innovation. Refocus on information architecture.

The Evolution of Enterprise Architecture

CEB IT

For today's enterprise architectur e (EA), this same pattern is inspiring architects and technology innovation leaders to design and deliver new operating models, with business outcomes now at center stage. New business models will bring together new customers, services and experiences, but this isn’t possible without business architecture to help design and shape the execution.

Microservices: The Dark Side

Speaker: Prem Chandrasekaran

A few years ago, Barclays embarked on a journey to migrate its legacy services to a modern tech stack with the objective of achieving a high level of scale, resilience, and reliability. During the incremental, iterative move towards an ecosystem of focused, distributed services, it’s fair to say that the company discovered the challenges of distributing objects. Join us for an episode you can’t miss if you’re finding it a lot harder to architect in practice than in theory, and learn how you can shed light on the dark side of microservices.

Serverless and Containers: How to Choose the Right Application Strategy

Speaker: Tolga Tarhan, Senior Vice President, GM AWS Services at Onica

‘Containerize everything’ is lazy cloud architecture

David Linthicum

According to Grand View Research, and pretty much every other IT research firm: “The global application container market size was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2018 and is expected to register a CAGR of 26.5% from 2019 to 2025.” You don’t have to read an analyst report to see the growth in containers. Almost all the projects I’m on these days have containerization as a core thread as enterprises move rapidly to cloud-based platforms.
