Platform9 announced key additional building blocks in delivering the next generation SaaS managed Kubernetes experience.
IT Revolution announced the availability of its newest book, Team Topologies: Organizing Business and Technology Teams for Fast Flow.
Authored by IT Consultants Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais, Team Topologies provides a practical, step-by-step, adaptive model for organizational design and team interaction based on four fundamental team types and three team interaction patterns. It presents a model that treats teams as the fundamental means of software delivery, where team structures and communication pathways are able to evolve with technological and organizational maturity.
"Matthew Skelton and Manuel Pais have written a wonderful and pragmatic book about team structure patterns, describing their characteristics, success factors and their pitfalls," said Gene Kim, founder of IT Revolution, author of the upcoming book, The Unicorn Project, and co-author of The Phoenix Project, The DevOps Handbook and Accelerate. "Team Topologies is a must-read for anyone building or maintaining software systems, and helps expand our understanding of organizational architecture through a pragmatic guide that enables teams to be more effective at value delivery for the business."
"Successful organizations have realized that building and running software systems need awareness of the sociotechnical context: people plus tech," said Pais. "Our book helps organizations to adopt a sociotechnical approach by considering Conway's Law, team cognitive load, and team-first software boundaries. These all help to make software delivery more sustainable for the business."
"A team-first approach to software systems is essential for success in today's fast-moving business environment," added Skelton. "Our book was inspired and informed by our work organizations around the world (US, Europe, China) and many companies struggle to make software delivery effective because team boundaries and behaviors are poorly defined. Our book provides valuable patterns and guidance to help teams succeed at software."
