The Trouble With Software (and what to do about it)


The IT Revolution Press

I highly recommend The Phoenix Project: A Novel about IT, DevOps, and Helping Your Business Grow by Gene Kim, Kevin Behr, and George Spafford. This excellent business novel is a great read and realistic portrayal of the trials and tribulations of in-house software development and management in a large corporation. It is also “prescriptive,” suggesting a three-level approach to resolving issues that often cripple the IT process by isolating it from the rest of the business. Also see the related IT Revolution Website.

Create, Assemble and Deploy – The Future of Application Development

Prashant Pawar, Delivery Manager, CORPADM, has a very interesting take on systems development (on the Infosys Website) as the “smart assembly” of industry standard components. Of course, the real challenges are (a) to be “smart” about it, and (b) to get any industry to agree on what its standards should be. Anyway, it’s a worthy goal.
