Architecture Modernization: Product, Domain, & Team-Oriented

A Guide for Technology Leaders

About the Book

Organizations invest billions of dollars every year modernizing software architectures. Innovating at speed is a necessity for digital businesses and a well-designed architecture enables innovation at speed. 

Despite the huge investments, architecture modernization initiatives are prone to failure. Modernizing architectures requires technical leaders to connect many dots, from the business model and the domain, to the organization structure and the cloud platform. Leaders that don’t have this essential breadth of expertise will single-mindedly focus on the technical aspects of modernization. The results will be economically and personally disappointing.

This book provides technical leaders with a model for planning and delivering modernization. It shows how to connect all of the dots, from business model to architectural boundaries. Practical techniques are presented for effectively navigating each aspect of modernization including Wardley Mapping, The Bounded Context Canvas, and Team Topologies.
