    We make companies feel young again by helping them move faster, to be more nimble and creative. Many factors go into “feeling young” and all of them lie in that nexus of forces that are changing the way business and technology work together. The scale and the breadth of change can be bewildering but a closer look...

    Platforms Beat Monoliths

    Architecture, platforms, belief

It takes time for the industry to settle on an equilibrium position, and quite...
