If technology affects everyone, shouldn’t technology be for everyone? By everyone? The architecture of distributed systems becomes increasingly complex. And big data, artificial intelligence and machine learning all make things more complicated. Yet we witness a continued pushback to allow more people — even non-IT trained — to be able to access the potential of technology and even create it.
This isn’t just driven by a technological change. More interestingly, it’s a cultural change. And a drive to find a common language so that all key stakeholders can understand the intent behind any digital resource.
At KubeCon+CloudNativeCon last month, The New Stack founder and publisher Alex Williams sat down with Pivotal’s senior vice president James Watters and Pivotal’s global chief technology officer of data-intensive software Sina Sojoodi. They take you on the historical journey from our origins of service-oriented architecture and Waterfall program management through to the microservices architecture, event-driven design and agile practices of today. And they begin to look toward the dependency-oriented and data-centric tomorrow.
