The architecture that made a successful startup is often not the one that will facilitate continued growth. Those early implementations will require enhancements as technology and business needs change. This requires the team to adopt an evolutionary mindset, one that understands the value of the system that is working now but embraces incremental change to achieve the ultimate goal. Most of my experience centers around helping organizations to get to market quickly with a solution with a foundation built for evolution. In addition to helping organizations evolve their existing solution that have reached their limit.
The most stable structures or organizations are built on a strong foundation with a sound architecture, Software systems are no different. I believe clean and simple architectures with clearly understood guiding principles can help a team build a stable solution that can evolve to meet changing business needs.
