Demonstrating your Architecture

Demonstrating your Architecture

How do you demonstrate your software is ready? However you define "demonstrate" or "ready", sharing how applications fits requirements is important not only internally at your organization, but possibly valuable to community peers worldwide.

In this talk we address five non-functional requirements: Security, Reliability, Performance, Cost Optimization and Operational Excellence. Let's explore how to measure and share decisions to satisfy them to the expected level using the best of cloud innovations and tools.
