Driving Enterprise Architecture Redesign: Cloud-Native Platforms, APIs, and DevOps


Published on

High performance architecture is rapidly changing due to three fundamental drivers:

Cloud-Native Platforms - change the way we think about operational infrastructure
DevOps - changes application lifecycle practices
APIs - change how we integrate and evolve infrastructure and applications, especially Mobile apps

In this session, Chris will illustrate:

Why you should consider Cloud-Native architecture components in your Enterprise Architecture
What is DevOps impact on App and API design guidelines
How API-centric focus revises Enterprise Architecture
