The Agile Architecture Revolution

The Agile Architecture Revolution: How Cloud Computing, REST-Based SOA, and Mobile Computing Are Changing Enterprise IT

Chapter 1: Introducing Agile Architecture
By: Jason Bloomberg

Deconstructing Agile, and rebuilding the concept in the context of organizations and their strategic goals, is what this first chapter, Introducing Agile Architecture, is all about. It’s about changing the Agile belief system and “making a case that the Agile Architecture Revolution is a true revolution.” Once you’ve deconstructed that belief system by holding it up to the light so you can see through the weak spots, you can learn from that experience and, ultimately, architect a better belief system—one that helps you achieve your business goals faster and more efficiently. 

In his book The Agile Architecture Revolution: How Cloud Computing, Rest-based SOA and Mobile Computing are changing Enterprise IT," Mr. Bloomberg hopes to “open your eyes to new ways of thinking about technology, about business, and about change itself."
