How to Help Software Engineering Teams Modernize Their Application Architecture Skills

From agile practices and DevOps to artificial intelligence and event-driven architecture

Analysts: Mark O'Neill, Anne Thomas

The Gartner 2020 Building Digital Platforms Study shows that application architecture skills, including cloud-native, agile/DevOps, API mediation, multiexperience and event-driven architecture, are closely linked to digital business success. Developing architectural skills is complex and time-consuming; often, many organizations that don't develop these skills miss out on the benefits of digital transformation and digital business.

We have identified key steps to help you raise architectural skill levels throughout your organization:

  • Prioritize learning and development of architecture skills that have the most organizational impact
  • Identify the impediments to the development of these skills
  • Create a learning climate with routine learning opportunities and methods
