I think that there's some really interesting parts to that because, for a while, people quoted Conway's Law as a cynical joke, it was in the same category as Murphy's Law. How do we realign around that? Szkolenie prowadzi Agile Coach, Piotrek Zielniok. And that's what he calls decentralized economic decision making, that you might have read this in his fabulous book. Real-life stories of technology leaders’ transformation journeys. I think that this Amazon story is one of the most breathtaking examples of how an organization was able to change their architecture to enable developers and development teams to become orders of magnitude more productive. There's one more point though, that I'd like to make, which is something engineers don't realize is that most communications in business are negotiations of some kind. Michael Nygard, 59 Willows, CA. Vis profilene til personer på LinkedIn som heter «Michael Nygard». And so what I found so marvelous about that was I thought this was such an amazing example of Conway's law. He talked about boldness and initiative, specifically about cultivating the ability to take calculated risks. Like you mentioned, machine names, ports, files, locations, that sort of thing. It can be as much as saying, 'I think we need to use messaging more and rely less on synchronous communication." And you've talked about that in your DevOps Enterprise Talk, which I absolutely love. If you're getting customers, then you get to add onto your service. You're kind of going through this expansionary phase where you take the dozen or so people that formed the nucleus of the company before and now each of them has a group of 100 or 200 that they're trying to align. Gene, here. What rack is this?". By having that connection with the leaders on the business side as well. So what they'll tend to do is describe the situation and leave it to the other person to infer the consequences or assume that the other person understands the consequences. The dependency, topology where everything calls everything else. It would be the devs in the front end, kind of a PHP in their case, and then the DBAs would have to work inside of the stored procedures inside of Postgres on the backend. I think that's really one of the marks of a great boundary spanner. As part of a positive compliance effort, I wrote a version of VI that worked on a full screen synchronous terminal. And if you're doing 30 to 50 deployments a day, this was a real problem. Or who failing to change the incentives to match the new structure. So we might consider the macroservices or mezzo scale services. Around the world, the z/OS mainframe platform collectively does 2 billion transactions every second. You would hear, over lunch, somebody says, "Oh, yeah. BAD 1 - 2 POOR 2 - 3 FAIR 3 - 4 GOOD 4 - 5. So, can you talk a little bit about what it is like being responsible for a quote enterprise architecture and what are the best attributes among the counterparts that you deal with? So kludges cluster. He spent six years in active duty and 16 years in the reserves, retiring as a captain. We must all learn to build systems that evolve and grow. They would just meet in the middle, inside of SPRouter, and as one of the senior engineers said, "This required a degree of synchronization and coordination that was rarely achieved, to the point where almost every deployment became a mini outage." Maybe you can make small changes to reduce the need for it. And then you translate it to dollars. Michael Nygard demonstrates how to design and architect systems that admit change—bending and flexing through time. And as we've often heard, process is the scar tissue of past incidents. And I remember laughing when I heard this because it matches one of my own 'aha' moments, which is really that you need an org chart and a software architecture that are congruent. I might liken that to creating product teams, that each have their own reporting hierarchy, but together are bound around the construct of the product. In fact, we really need 24, or it's going to be screaming hell fire around here, or counteroffer with a request for the other things you need. And so at the risk of seeming pedantic, you have to develop a personal style that lets you do this where they understand you're trying to help, not condescend. In terms of the door of research and the architecture qualities, I think all of those qualities that you described are the results of architecture, the observable characteristics of architecture that provides safety. And I was the only UNIX person in this entire UNIX's facility of mainframe programmers. Well, I'm on Twitter. Even though the org chart is probably the same, the way they interface with each other resulted in profoundly different outcomes. I actually studied this post this week, which fortified me to actually tackling refactoring a code base that has been increasingly difficult and scary to change. We've all seen the outdated, yet mandated enterprise framework that everyone is supposed to use. Imagine if you could have written one page and just had a conversation about that. They are perfectly consumer focused. What's expected of you? Well, so that's exactly like you're in the dynamic language camp that says, "The speed of building things dynamically exceeds the cost of the runtime errors and fixing those." And it might take hours or even days for the right two people to talk to each other to solve the problem. So let's go back to architecture again. Nasi stażyści szkolą się w temacie Agile i poznają nowoczesne metody wytwarzania oprogramowania. All teams will henceforth expose their data and functionality through service interfaces. One was in the underlying technologies, which you found in ships, and in that strategic mission that there were in service of. Another team, 15 people behind schedule over budget, which one does the company put its funding into? You were able to span a very complex boundary? 7. Actually, it is. And that's another thing that most companies don't do. Michael is currently Vice President, Travel Solutions Platform Development Enterprise Architecture, for Sabre, the company reimaging the business of travel.. See all Michael Nygard's info on ConfEngine. But the person hearing it doesn't have the baseline knowledge to draw those conclusions, right? I remember reading a book called Sunburst, which was all about the absolute genius of Sun Microsystems and Scott McNealy in particular. Totally. This is what such rumor mill triggers certain responses, whether it's fear or ambition or greed. So that you could actually quickly work together to solve the problem together. Moment. Time, and money, and schedules, and resources. In this episode of the Idealcast, I'm so delighted that I have on Mike Nygard, currently VP of Enterprise, Architecture and Platform Development at Saber, the software and technology company at the heart of the business of travel. Michael has written and co-authored several books, including "97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know" and the best seller "Release It! We overload our terms a lot in this industry. We overload our terms a lot in this industry. Who are your collaborators? I thought this was absolutely fantastic. Once you have done that, then you're faced with the question of, "Okay, now we've got autonomy, but we're faced with an existential challenge in the marketplace." We've got to fix this right now." Find Michael Nygaard in the United States. And if I could concretize that even further, that's the notion... Is that of isolation? I'll put a link to it in the show notes. But when it came to short and medium term objectives, they were tied towards a very common mission. That's a great insight, Gene. Shared libraries, shared services, shared technology platforms. So, the boundary between the teams becomes a boundary in the software. Michael Nygard. I'm going to point to Melvin Conway and Conway's Law, where he said that the organization is constrained to build a system that recapitulates the communication structure of the organization. His work has pioneered patterns that we're all familiar with now, such as circuit breakers, the bulkhead pattern, chaos engineering, and so many more. So I think these findings don't particularly surprise me and they do definitely describe characteristics of good architecture. Meaning there's a one to one relationship between the two, then there's a deficit on the expertise to make good architectural decisions. These things that engender trust, whether it's through vulnerability, authenticity, clarity of mission, succinct message that everyone can see how their daily work helps advance is or is not connected to the grand goals. I don't know what you want me to do about that.". I was like, "Why are they doing that?" I remember reading his Seminole book, Release It. And the consequence of that is that they were only able to do dozens of deployments each year. And by the way, when I was writing the unicorn project, the protagonist Maxine was in many ways modeled after you. In 1964, John Boyd introduced ””energy-maneuverability”” theory. And he says, "If you know why you are doing things, you can adapt better to changing conditions." So, therefore, if that's true, if that's true, then to what extent are leaders responsible for being aware of creating truing up the architecture as they serves the goals of the business it serves. You would just always be coding, always be coding, but we can't. So that would be an example of a good reorganization. So I could create as many of them as I liked. Use your environment to communicate the changes." I didn't know that!" So I got to do a lot of administrative work in the safest possible environment. It loves very quick transactions. We saved a couple of weeks of development, but we're losing $10 million every other week or so when this stuff crashes. This created tremendous fear of change, which led to increase in cruft and legacy and build up. And I think when you are encountering a boundary between disciplines, you don't need to learn everything about the other discipline, but it does help to learn enough of the language to be able to communicate with the denizens of that domain. Gene, here. Lawsuits, Liens or Bankruptcies found on Michael's Background Report View Details. What your constraints are? And it's very tough with the front ends because of the nature of JavaScript. But I can undertake almost any initiative I want and tie it to the notion of being customer focused. Who hasn't lived with a code base where we fear to change it in exactly the way that Mike talks about? Wise leadership is required to avoid the fear cycle. I think it was, React. Architecture plans in enterprises tend to resemble late-night infomercials. So when you're talking to database people, you probably talk about tables and columns and data types. Coupling seems to be the root of all ills. By 2015, they're doing 136,000 deployments a day. Could you do it in eight weeks instead of 20? One constructs the software architecture to best serve the architecture as a business. You should consider sharing your proposal on popular Social Networks. Those are architectures. 517-336-9684 Korinne Kolasa. In fact, a very common pattern I've seen is a company goes through a reorganization, for whatever reason or whatever purpose, but they focus entirely on the static structure, who reports to who, but they don't talk about how they want the behaviors to change or who your new collaborators are meant to be. It's easier to build things when you have that characteristic. You pass in a GraphQL Query. He says, "Take a look at your architecture, language, tools, and team. And if you didn't quite get it, fear not. Gene Kim is a Wall Street Journal bestselling author, researcher, and multiple award-winning CTO. So paying attention to the structure is definitely universal. So, there are definitely levels of safety that I would say enable these characteristics that are described here as the observable predictors of success. You could have a death star diagram, right? So there are people in my company that I spend an hour with a week just talking to them about what the nature is of our systems and of development in general. I think they had all three, which I didn't actually know was possible to have all in one app, but because the teams had so much autonomy and authority to make technology choices, you didn't end up in these horrendous situations where... You can imagine there was some very negative effects that can happen when you have three JavaScript UI Frameworks, all extend in the same place. You need the ability to hit a button so that they're deactivated. And it keeps breaking in different ways, you learn a tremendous amount about that. Quite a lot, as it turns out. And I don't know, you can probably tell that one of the things I like to do is teach and share what I've learned and what I know. Advising on the architecture of the organization, the static structure, and the dynamic structure. So one approach is you have a group of people who've all been through the fire together. I mentioned a famous ACM paper that he wrote that described the re-platforming of the Obidos system. Since 2014, he has been the founder and organizer of DevOps Enterprise Summit, studying the technology transformations of large, complex organizations. Well, those are the days that I feel like I might actually be qualified for this job as opposed to the other days where you get blindsided by something and you're like, "Man, what? All right, that blog post that Mike wrote, was titled Cost of Coherence, and it is such an interesting post. I would say that another aspect of it is that you don't need global knowledge. So there are different mechanisms to achieve it, but trust is also pretty essential. Awesome. So this gets to my question that, I've been leading up towards. I'll be airing that followup interview in the weeks to come just as we did for the Steven Spear interview series. Okay, back to the interview. So there's a couple of variations on that. So architecture is really about time. So that decision making could be localized that they could do the work without any dependencies. There's a lot to unpack there. There's a lot to unpack there. And part of that is that, if all these components are being built in parallel, it sure helps to be able to test them and integrate them at places, not just at the end. But the question you asked was about whether leaders needed to know more about architecture and how that interplay between org and architecture could maybe go both ways. I absolutely believe that. Sadly, enterprise integration destroys maneuverability more often than it helps. You earn 30 bonus points on your first activity on every new conference. It loves interrupts. This episode is brought to you by IT Revolution, whose mission is to help technology leaders succeed through publishing and events. ‚Äì Luister direct op jouw tablet, telefoon of browser naar The Idealcast with Gene Kim by IT Revolution - geen downloads nodig. And you're like, "Yeah, the last hour we took $97,000 worth of orders." In that time, we have rediscovered some gems from the past and we have invented new techniques and tools. There's actually a common mission tying them both. So maybe just to help with my own advocation, in the case where the two engineers are able to talk together, it is a part of structure. Mike, I got to tell you, I have a big grin on my face and I'll have a smile on my face for the rest of the day, because you've explored in such detail things that I so much care about. Actually, GraphQL is probably not a good example because it's more strongly typed. What are the real implications of Conway's law? That's a fictitious example of a pattern that actually has occurred. Select this result to view Michael P A Nygard's phone number, address, and more. But the frustration in my experience, the frustration doesn't just lead them to pull the lever that opens the trap door that drops you into the shark tank. And I had the privilege of seeing Don Reinertsen present at the Scaled Agile Safe summit in 2017. So each SCS goes all the way from gooey to backend to reporting. This workshop includes both teaching and hands-on design sessions. And just to be able to hear your experiences and learnings over the years. Well, I'll start with the lowest of low marks. I'm always a little cautious about survivorship bias when we're looking at case studies. I think of it as you create a magnetic field, so all the iron filings lineup in the right direction. I'm pretty active there as M-T-N-Y-G-A- -R-D. And you can use [email protected] to reach me by email. Like it threw me sufficiently motivated. Anybody who doesn't do this will be fired. Architecture, Agile, Microservices, Maneuverability, Enterprise, Scale. Right. One is, "We have no fear at all; we just did one." It seems to reinforce this notion that one of the responsibility of leaders is not just to design the organization, but also make sure that there is an architecture that is suitable for achieving that mission. Do I understand correctly that you were actually part of a certain outsourced operations organization? So the effect was that the backend developers never quite knew if any change they were making was going to be safe because they had 2.8 million storefronts with every possible combination of templates. And he enjoyed drawing block diagrams that made no sense, we're half-truths and included a bunch of a weird parts that nobody had heard of and leaving them on whiteboards in conference rooms. Our industry evolves rapidly, however, and last year’s sound practice might just be drag this year. Oh, wow. "Coupling" is one such. In other words, that creative destruction process or continuing renewal process is really important. It showed that the fastest airplane didn’t always win the dogfight. You earn 100 points when your proposal is selected. And what's fascinating is: with the best of intention, you can change the org structure, but the old structure may be baked into tools that become the operating system of the organization. The notion that the more senior you get, the more power you have and now you can make everything. I'm like, "Yeah, yeah." Which is collectively seven orders of magnitude, more transactions than what Google handles each second. But someone else might hear it and go, "Okay. So, you get the formal structure and a shadow network or shadow structure. "1. And you're creating benefits for the next iteration down the road and the iteration after that. Is IT in the company done? This would have been '92. And so in doing that, I'm continually working with the other leaders in the company, talking with them all the time. And I'm tickled pink that you read that. Is there a coherence to the problems being solved? And if so, what makes it so hard? Werner Vogels wrote in the ACM that, "It complected all of the display logic, all of the business logic, the recommendations tools. Wikipedia describes it like this. In the latest episode of The Idealcast, Gene Kim is joined by Michael Nygard, a senior vice president at Sabre and author of the bestselling Release It! And there are plenty of examples of books, like Good to Great, where 90% of the companies profiled are gone or would no longer make the list. And he was describing the incredibly elegant solutions required to mitigate so many of those problems. It is the molasses that slows our every move. They have also lived in Mason, MI and East Lansing, MI plus 3 other locations. Absolutely not. And if the assertion is that architecture is isomorphic, right? You could have a body of the butterfly where you've got front end services, that call an API layer, that calls a backend services. And don't forget the value of being able to delete things or shut things down. I think you called it maneuverability in one phase. So imagine you edit your whole screen full of text, you go down to the command line, you hit submit. Because they had done the analysis of the economics and said, a pound of weight has to be carried on every trip, back and forth that the plane makes. Conversations with experts where we learn about the important ideas changing how organizations compete and win. And Oracle RAC is what? Michael T. Nygard A single dramatic software failure can cost a company millions of dollars - but can be avoided with simple changes to design and architecture. Select this result to view Stephen S Nygard's phone number, address, and more. You create the tools to facilitate processes for a certain org structure. How do you enable productivity at scale, not within a team? I don't know that it would produce the same success in other companies by just emulating the behaviors in this memo. But what it means is, I don't have any compile time checking on my large scale architecture, right? And I think well understood at this point. And I think the assertion would also be that you can actually be more competitive when you have those properties in your architecture. I think it's something that every senior leader also needs to understand. And as someone with an engineering background, you go, "Holy crap, five minutes of backlog. That's so amazing to me that when people read the book kind of their reactions like, "Holy cow, she seems like a superhero.". And I'm thinking about sort of like that taken to an extreme. - Duration: 3:21. That nuance can be lost. And so I think that really shows that so much of what Mike talks about you can actually see in the State of Dev Ops research. Okay. In every organization where we've seen services and microservices succeed, they've paid tremendous attention to the nature of those interfaces and the boundaries that they represent. And this is where a lot of enterprises get service APIs, exactly backwards. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements about our amazing speaker lineup. So our premise was operation software at the time was very expensive, certainly staffing an operation center, 24/7 is very and in equipment in personnel. And when you can get to a point where every team can make all the changes themselves without any dependencies on anyone else, then you get all these great outcomes because then you don't need to communicate and coordinate with anybody outside of the team. ... and solve the problem together much more quickly. Experience GE Capital Retail Finance January 2012 - Present FICO April 2011 - January 2012 FICO June 2009 - April 2011 GE Money June 2004 - February 2009 G.E. So how does it feel, when you can successfully persuade someone to go towards a simpler design? Likewise, when development and ops talk, it's really best to meet those concrete artifacts. Navy Seals reported to the secretary of the Navy. Is that-. What great architecture looks like? And then the code base accumulates warts, knobs and special cases, and fear intensifies." She told me this. And that's been brought home to me, especially in organizations that are very sensitive to the hierarchy, and to titles, and levels because some people are inclined to snarky remarks, or cynicism, or being facetious or flippant, but especially in large companies or global companies, the nuance of that being a facetious comment, or I'm not serious, I was just kidding about that. Conversations with experts where we learn about the important ideas changing how organizations compete and win. So can you comment on that and really... Maybe it's seem to the question of, what extent do leaders need to be responsible for the architecture and how do you make them sufficiently informed to enable the right types of architecture? It isn't necessarily as fast a process as we would always like, but it's building that Rebel Alliance, except it's a Rebel Alliance of people who are VPs and above. He shares his passion and energy for improvement with everyone he meets, sometimes even with their permission. In fact, you tell the story in your amazing 2018 DevOps enterprise talk on tempo, maneuverability initiative, which we'll get back to later. mtnygard has 99 repositories available. Let me relax a little bit, bring in some money, but also re-energize and heal a little. He has been studying high-performing technology organizations since 1999 and was the founder and CTO of Tripwire for 13 years. We cannot predict the details, but we can learn the general patterns. I think '91, '92, somewhere around there. Yeah, I'll-. Wikipedia defines it as a form of military tactics where the emphasis is on the outcome of a mission rather than a specific means of achieving it. Could you do it in eight weeks instead of 20? So in 2004-. So I looked at this and I'm like, "This is embarrassing. Michael is currently Senior Vice President, Travel Solutions Platform Development Enterprise Architecture, for Sabre, the company reimagining the business of travel. Split the system with internal boundaries, split the team. So for example, if you tell me that you've got microservices, you've told me almost nothing about your architecture, right? And it was fascinating. Like, "Come on, really." You can find more information at eventsthatitrevolution.com/virtual. The overwhelming majority of our problems were software created. it was like we were doing so well." 517-336-2010 Emilyan Zipser. But the impact of this is so obvious now, looking 15 years in the future. We are so much looking forward to the DevOps Enterprise Summit, Vegas, Virtual, which will now be held on October 13th to the 15th. And he said he inherited his project, and to develop a feature, you had the front end engineers work on one thing. That challenge of trading off autonomy and ability to make independent change versus efficiency pops up over and over again. Michael has helped businesses and technology leaders in their transformation journeys over his long career and was even one of the inspirations behind The Unicorn Project’s protagonist, Maxine. Mike, can you talk about that quote and why it's important to you, and any advice you would have to technologists about how better to communicate with business leadership. Big companies can create really big software disasters. And you're able to link that to that, that big vision that I talked about, the actionable vision. The problem in 2004 was that every team needed to touch the Obidos system, whether it was changing the display logic, the business logic, the recommendations engine, everything. Faithfulness to country core unit seniors, subordinates, and peers, centrify. The third result is Michael P A Nygard age 50s in Fargo, ND in the Northport neighborhood. Sadly, the difference between a technical SWAT team and a tribunal is mostly in how individuals in that group approach the issue. Because, you can't test in isolation, you can't run in isolation. And they turn it into an API, right? Microservices sound appealing, but what can we do with those ten-million-line code bases? He shares his passion and energy for improvement with everyone he meets, sometimes even with their permission. But you're probably not talking about cylinder layouts or LUNs or the sand behind the HPAs and that sort of thing. Testing is not enough to prove that your software is ready for continuous availability in the corrosive environment of the Internet. So, that was this interesting experience where I was in operations. How do we want their behaviors change? And I'm so pleased with the outcomes even after only a couple hours of work. So it's a middle ground where we are maintaining the information, but the service that's applying the logic, isn't the one that is maintaining the database of information. So I love this post. We've asked Michael Nygard! This is costing us a lot of money. 517-336-8819 Talman Witchey. Architecture as the Organizing Logic for Components and the Means for their Construction, In the latest episode of The Idealcast, Gene Kim is joined by Michael Nygard, a senior vice president at Sabre and author of the bestselling, Michael has helped businesses and technology leaders in their transformation journeys over his long career and was even one of the inspirations behind, For sponsorship inquiries, please contact Ann Perry (, Michael has written and co-authored several books, including, 97 Things Every Software Architect Should Know. And so therefore, we begin to fear making changes. And so just the existence of that field meant a dev who wanted to try that out had to go find out what their cost center was. @mtnygard. That's my API." That stood for a Stored Procedure Router. And the marks of great architecture in the study were these: to what extent can teams make large scale changes to their parts of the system without permission from anyone else outside the team; to what extent can they do their work without a lot of fine grain communication and coordination with people outside the team; can they release their service or product on demand, independent of other services they may depend upon; can they do their own testing on demand without the use of an ingredient test environment; a point of incredible coupling, if that exists. And then we try to make every change as small and local as possible. He is a highly sought speaker who addresses developers, architects, and technology leaders around the world. Operators are always standing by. Is that right? Look to people with experience in operations or technical management.". So you couldn't even bring that data into lower environments to test out all the permutations. Say, we can do it in eight weeks and then an extra 20 weeks to deal with issue X, Y, Z and W because each of them is costing us 10,000 hours a year in maintenance, right? And with some hindsight, it seems now obvious to me that this is a book that could only have been written by a true boundary spanner.
