Architecting for rapid, frequent, reliable and sustainable delivery of software


Today, in order for a business to be successful,  IT must deliver software rapidly, frequently, reliably and sustainably 

In this presentation, I describe the trends that are forcing enterprise IT to accelerate software delivery sustainably (RFRS).

You will learn about the architectural quality attributes that rapid software delivery requires.

I compare and contrast two architectural styles -  the monolithic architecture and the microservice architecture - and describe their quality attributes.

You will learn how well each architectural style meets the needs of rapid software delivery.

I describe the criteria that will help choose an appropriate architecture for your application.
