#43 “IT’s not that easy”. 5 pillars of success in the development of IT systems
There is a belief among IT specialists that the problems of the systems they are working on today can be solved with one or two “silver bullets”. Introducing microservices, moving to the cloud, introducing NoSQL solutions, etc. Meanwhile, the reality is more complicated. The available technology gives possibilities that were practically unavailable 10 years ago, but using them to the full requires a holistic approach to how we build software. Omitting any of the 5 pillars of modern IT could result in the failure of the escape project from “monolithic hell”.
