She highlights her experience in various domains and how she integrated diverse ideas into her work, leading to the identification of communication patterns and anti-patterns. The conversation delves into the reputation of programmers as poor communicators and the potential for improvement through Jacqui's insights.Jacqui's book covers a broad spectrum of communication, including verbal, written, non-verbal, and visual communication. Jacqui emphasizes the significance of visual communication, which constitutes a substantial portion of the book. She addresses the inclusion of illustrations, particularly discussing considerations for grayscale printing and offering links to color versions on the accompanying website. The podcast touches on sections of the book dedicated to the communication of knowledge, documentation, and the challenges of remote communication in today's distributed teams and companies.Jacqui Read is an internationally recognised solution and enterprise architect, and author of "Communication Patterns: A Guide for Developers and Architects", with hands-on experience and expertise architecting and coding software systems. She specialises in assisting businesses to create and enhance architecture practices, construct evolutionary architectures, and untangle and extract value from data and knowledge.Alongside consulting, Jacqui teaches public and private workshops and speaks at international conferences on topics such as architecture practices, technical communication, and architecture decisions.

Banking Transformation and Modernization

Banking Transformation and Modernization
Vaughn Vernon has a conversation with Alfredo Muñoz regarding the transformation and modernization within banks, why it's so urgently needed, and how efforts can be successful. Their discussion encompasses BIAN, Domain-Driven Design, Data Mesh, and why focusing on business capabilities as business, service, events, and data domains is critical. We address why banks are so resistant to change but why they must learn a new mindset in order to both survive and flourish in the age of cloud and digital banks. For example, a bank transaction that has 1,000 COBOL calls will never work in the cloud, nor will a transaction that makes 100 API calls. How can new technologies and approaches to software development help banks, insurance, airlines, telecom, and other industries that heavily rely on mainframe power successfully switch out of the old status quo?Alfredo is an Enterprise Architect, and Banking Transformation Expert with more than 25 years of experience in large scale banking transformations in Europe, Asia and Latam, always involving first tier banksHe currently works in the Global Center of Excellence for Banking and Financial Market at IBMDuring the past years he has developed the methodology for the modernization of corebanking systems, including the adoption cloud infrastructure in coexistence with legacy systems, the BIAN Industry Standards, the industrialization and standardization of the design and development processes and the use of low code development frameworks with the primary objective to deliver transformation at scale, as required for large Financial Institutions.He has authored leading points of view, methods and assets on core systems transformation to Cloud.ñoz-ríos/ Hosted on Acast.
