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.

Building Evolvable Architectures

Speaker: Dr. Rebecca Parsons, CTO of ThoughtWorks
