Building Evolutionary Architectures: 2nd Edition

Automated Software Governance

Put the principles of automated governance into action

 

The new edition of Building Evolutionary Architectures expands on the principles laid out in the first edition to demonstrate how software architects and engineering teams can successfully realize an evolutionary architecture.

 

Using a wide selection of concrete examples that have emerged through conversations and responses to the first edition of the book, it details how fitness functions can be used to drive, manage, and automate change across all of the architectural concerns that every complex modern organization must contend with — including data, applications, and platforms.

 

However you might be involved in architectural decision making, the second edition of Building Evolutionary Architectures provides comprehensive and applied guidance that will help you tame complexity and adopt a technical posture that views change as an opportunity to be leveraged, not a risk to be managed.

What's new in the second edition?

Fitness functions
This edition of the book dives deeper into fitness functions and demonstrates how you can use them to automate architectural governance
Structure
The authors explore how different architecture styles and patterns facilitate evolution and outline the impact of granularity and communication.
Impact
