Tech trends from @Bain&Company posits that #Technology Is Reshaping the Global Economy | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Technology has emerged as the primary disruptor and value creator across all sectors.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this tech trends is different than other "lists" in that it analyses a number of topics and provides useful data trends to understand the issues. Well done and very useful. I highlight the change in buying behaviour in the chart I extracted (buyers know what they want more than in the past but sellers have yet to adapt to this new normal) - but I guarantee the report has a bunch more.

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management reminds us that integrating different solutions has become the name of the game in #digitalTransformation

Gartner Magic Quadrant for Full Life Cycle API Management reminds us that integrating different solutions has become the name of the game in #digitalTransformation | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

API usage, and the need to govern it, is increasing rapidly driven by remote working, platforms, ecosystems, innovations, digital transformations and regulations. Application leaders should use this Magic Quadrant to find the right API life cycle management vendor for their organization’s needs.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: integrating different systems, especially in the context of cloud-based SaaS solutions, has become the biggest requirement of large system developments in recent digital transformation. For example, it is now common to connect eCommerce systems with CRM, ERP, web and marketing automation solutions. Some come already pre-integrated via extensive marketplaces like that of Shopify. Other solutions and platforms merely expose their API and let others do the connexion. This is where API management becomes essential. Other use case exist.

As with most Gartner MQ, skip the reviews and jump to the market overview and criterias to find out what should be considered in your API tool selection.

Evolving the enterprise architect role for a digital world via @McKinsey points in the right direction but misses the target: EA is not a ROLE but a PRACTICE that many in the organization should ma... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Enterprise architects still have an important role to play at large incumbents, but they need to evolve in three ways.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: McKinsey is right to highlight the importance of enterprise architecture in the digital world.

Where they miss the boat in their analysis is that EA is not a ROLE but rather a PRACTICE that many people in the organization should master.

EA provides the tools and methodologies to analyze complex options and determine the most appropriate one. EA looks at business plan, capabilities, data, systems, infrastructure, security and governance required to determine the people, process and technologies needed to deliver value.

They say it best in the article when they suggest to 'Build an architecture mindset across the company" and demand that Enterprise Architects - if such role & title remains relevant - need to work on their soft skills and get their hands dirty.

In this article, I’ll walk you through the architecture of processing big records files within AWS services.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this short example shows how far we've come with serverless and event-drive architectures in the cloud, enabling complex processing as a pipeline of small operations. For old dudes like me this is a throwback to the command line pipelines we used to make in Un*x way back when. It makes for very resilient solutions, once you debug the flow. Should be used more often.

The Strangler Fig Application #pattern is a great analogy for most digital transformations: it is easier + faster + cheaper to grow a new solution that replaces the old one than do a complete rip-n... | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

The most important reason to consider a strangler fig application over a cut-over rewrite is reduced risk. A strangler fig can give value steadily and the frequent releases allow you to monitor its progress more carefully. Many people still don't consider a strangler fig since they think it will cost more - I'm not convinced about that. Since you can use shorter release cycles with a strangler fig you can avoid a lot of the unnecessary features that cut over rewrites often generate.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: Martin Rousseau highlighted this pattern recently. It represents what we've been doing for years in our practice. Case in point. You need a new eCommerce solution but there is an existing one, integrated with the ERP for years. Full of limitations, yet it works. Impossible to support the new use cases without huge investments and delays. Rip-n-replace is expensive and dangerous, plus you have to keep operating during the 9 to 18 months you build the new one.

This pattern suggests you should build a new solution quickly that leverages extensively the old one and the ERP and the systems in place. Then over time replace parts so that over the course of 3-4 years the old systems can be taken out without pain.

 

It takes an *exceptional* manager to put this solution forward and corry its execution over time though. Biggest challenge IMHO.

The Cloud Paradox: #cloudComputing flexibility is a tax that enables #startups to grow fast and agile, but when they become large enough, that same "tax" amputates *billions* in market value #mustRead | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

There is no doubt that the cloud is one of the most significant platform shifts in the history of computing. Now, there is a growing awareness of the long-term cost implications of cloud. As the cost of cloud starts to contribute significantly to the total cost of revenue (COR) or cost of goods sold (COGS), some companies have taken the dramatic step of “repatriating” the majority of workloads (as in the example of Dropbox) or in other cases adopting a hybrid approach (as with CrowdStrike and Zscaler). Those who have done this have reported significant cost savings: In 2017, Dropbox detailed in its S-1 a whopping $75M in cumulative savings over the two years prior to IPO due to their infrastructure optimization overhaul, the majority of which entailed repatriating workloads from public cloud.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: this article explores the cost of cloud computing for large SaaS companies that rely on cloud computing to run and operate their business. The basic argument is that cloud computing is amputating Billions from the market value of those large organizations. It should be read by every software engineer in every corporation and the proposed solutions implemented rapidly.

 

This statement summarizes the post best: "For a new startup or a new project, the cloud is the obvious choice. And it is certainly worth paying even a moderate “flexibility tax” for the nimbleness the cloud provides. The problem is, for large companies — including startups as they reach scale — that tax equates to hundreds of billions of dollars of equity value in many cases… and is levied well after the companies have already, deeply committed themselves to the cloud (and are often too entrenched to extricate themselves)."

Introduction to Event-Driven Architecture highlights key concepts, PROs, CONS and when to use via @Kacey-Bui

Introduction to Event-Driven Architecture highlights key concepts, PROs, CONS and when to use via @Kacey-Bui | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Event-driven Architecture (EDA) is a software architecture paradigm promoting the production and consumption of events.

An event represents an action of significant interest. Often, events correspond to a creation or a change of state of some entity. For example, raising an order in an e-commerce application is an event. Dispatching a product as a result of an earlier order is also an event. A customer submitting a review for a received product is — you guessed it — an event.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: a nice overview of event driven architecture. Take special note of PROs, CONs and when to use at the end - very important, EDA is not a silver bullet for all problems.

Amazed the #CloudComputing remains a question on some #CIOs mind - maybe this @McKinsey analysis of the trillion-dollar opportunity will convince the most reluctant | WHY IT MATTERS: Digital Transformation | Scoop.it

Companies should explore seven specific drivers to assess where the value lies in cloud. As companies assess the opportunities enabled by cloud, a detailed review of the sources of value can pinpoint where they need to focus their attention, people, and resources. Across the three dimensions, seven drivers of value can collectively generate more than $1 trillion in value.

Farid Mheir's insight:

WHY IT MATTERS: the opportunity of cloud computing remains whole as per this analysis from McKinsey. One chart of the benefits should convince the most reluctant CIOs that cloud is a good thing.
