  • Modular Monolithic Architecture, Microservices and Architectural Drivers

    Kamil Grzybek thinks that too often we implement a microservices architecture because we believe it will solve all problems in a monolithic application. Instead, we should focus on architectural drivers to find the best architecture for a system. In a series of articles, he has started to describe the basic concepts of a modular monolith and the drivers leading to a specific architecture.

  • Active Management of Open Source Components Delivers Measurable Improvements Claims Sonatype Report

    When organisations actively manage the quality of open source components in software applications they see a 28% improvement in developer productivity (through reduction in manual governance), a 30% reduction in overall development costs, and a 48% increase in application quality (as application vulnerabilities are removed early reducing their incidence in production).
