Application Resiliency: Keys to Planning for IoT and the Cloud
The technology storms continue to form and merge. The Internet of Things, software-defined everything, blockchain, and cloud computing are combining and recombining in new ways. To provide and consume trusted and resilient services, solutions must be defined and designed to accommodate failure. Although the term resiliency is seldom defined, clarified, or used in a meaningful context, it is often used to describe applications. However, this vagueness leads to rework, cost overrun, frustration, and most importantly, solutions that do not provide the resilience required by the business. Resiliency can take many forms: performance, security, integrity, and even personal safety. Steven Woodward shares a taxonomy in conjunction with example scenarios that highlight categories of resiliency. The models and examples Steven provides can be used immediately, helping to clarify risks, streamline activities, and plan and budget to contend with resiliency risks. Take this opportunity to network and exchange ideas that will help you build resilient applications as the technology storm front continually advances.
