The Hyperplexed Architectures

[Houston, Texas]

- Future Hyperplexed Architectures

Software architecture complexity refers to the complexity and interdependence of various components within a software system. It can manifest itself in many ways: 
  • Scale: As software systems grow in size and functionality, their architecture becomes inherently more complex. New features, integrations, and modules can introduce a web of dependencies that are difficult to manage.
  • Technology diversity: Modern software systems often involve a mix of programming languages, frameworks, and libraries. This diversity can complicate software architecture as different technologies must coexist and interact seamlessly.
  • User Expectations: Today's users require highly sophisticated software experiences. Meeting these expectations often requires complex architectures to accommodate features such as instant updates, machine learning algorithms, and user personalization.

The architecture of tomorrow will be completely different. It will be hyperplexed. That means software runs in many parts of public clouds, private data centers, personal devices, and dedicated hardware. 

Future platforms will natively support applications running across these disparate infrastructures and devices. 

This shift could lead to next-generation programming languages, new programming models such as serverless to make application development easier, and native support for distributed AI.


- Enterprise Software Architecture

In an increasingly digital world, companies understand that enterprise software architecture can yield tangible competitive advantages. Enterprise software architecture is the foundation of every technology-driven organization; not just hardware and software companies, but any organization that is building digital capabilities. 

Software architecture drives a company's ability to innovate, determines their R&D economics, and influences their operating model and ability to grow. No wonder the choice of enterprise software architecture has become a strategic imperative for businesses today.

The constant flow of innovation and technology has brought business processes to a new level of automation. Every business, big or small, needs to embrace digital technologies to accelerate and make their work culture more advanced. A company cannot progress without relying on custom software development. Changes in business models are necessary to stay alive in the competition. 

Any business that doesn't realize the importance of embracing the next generation of software development risks losing its reputation in the industry. Therefore, competitors will benefit from this situation by providing value to customers through advanced technology. 


- The Evolution of Software Architectures 

There have been four major changes in enterprise software architecture in the past five decades. They have evolved from mainframe architectures to monolithic, layered and, more recently, cloud-native software architectures. 

With new technologies such as IoT-driven artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) Growing Pervasiveness (IoT) and 5G Networks - There is an urgent need for a new generation of software architectures.

The development of cloud-native architectures and DevOps strategies that help accelerate innovation and software deployment help catalyze a new moment of change to come.


- Revolutionize Business with Cloud and Edge

The physics behind software development has radically changed over the past few years (2022) as hybrid, multi-cloud, and edge evolve. Today, 80% of enterprises have workloads that span multiple clouds, and two-thirds of them use multiple clouds for a variety of strategic reasons. Hybrid, edge, and multicloud become more pervasive. This means that applications in today's environment can span data centers and clouds, as well as to the edge.

Related to this trend is the growth of connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT). Until a few years ago (2022), there were questions about whether the Internet of Things was hyped. Today, we have 20 billion connected devices that generate about 50 zettabytes of data each year. Use cases in this regard include connected homes and smart cities, which still have room to grow into the mainstream. 

Further advances in data and artificial intelligence also affect software development. Of all data generated, 90% were generated in the past two years. When we talk to large software companies and enterprises, data and artificial intelligence are at the heart of their strategies. This is unlocking transformative use cases such as self-driving cars and medical imaging. 

We are on the cusp of another change. The proliferation of 5G wireless connectivity at the edge is also driving this change. This shift has revealed the limitations of some resources, such as microservices that cannot scale to meet the large number of new use cases emerging in the business, driving the need for further growth.
