The delusions that companies have about the cloud

leave a comment »

over time, it became clear to me that those who rejected cloud computing typically in favor of that unicorn of technology: the private cloud were experiencing a form of insanity that, if left untreated, would put the very existence of their companies at risk.

Metrics-Driven Development

leave a comment »

I would define MDD as a practice where metrics are used to drive the entire application development. In a company which uses MDD, everything from performance and usage patterns to revenue is measured. Moreover, every single decision taken by developers, operations or even business people is based on metrics. Metrics are used to monitor team performance, solve performance bottlenecks, estimate hardware needs or to accomplish other purposes at any stage of development life-cycle.

The beauty of MDD is that it also keeps misunderstandings to the minimum. When a decision is taken based on metrics, there’s hardly any room left for interpretation. Decisions become obvious, logical and simple to explain and thus hard to refute. Decisions are made more quickly and accurately and even the atmosphere in the team improves considerably. Moreover, this has a cascading effect that crosses team borders. Communication between them becomes less emotional and more data-driven. In other words, the blame game that sometimes arises between DEV and OPS or between multiple DEV teams is brought down to a minimum or even completely disappears.

Why Software Development Methodologies Suck

leave a comment »

It’s virtually impossible for us to practice continuous improvement, to learn how to get better as teams or as individuals, and to acquire the skills that enable the successful creation of great products and services – unless we focus on getting that feedback loop as short as possible so we can actually detect correlations, and discern cause and effect.
