New topics such as defining a multi-cloud strategy approach, cloud-native architecture, cloud DevOps, and mainframe modernization Expanded coverage of various evolving topics, such as solutions architecture in the public cloud, blockchain, and IoT Updates to common patterns and strategies to ensure content is relevant to the current solutions architecture landscape
How does your book differ from other books on solution architecture?
As the cloud becomes more popular, the solutions architect role is becoming more prominent, and many software developers, system engineers, and other IT professionals aspire to become solutions architects. However, many face knowledge gaps, which is why a one-stop shop is required to gain comprehensive insights into the architectural concepts needed for the role.
This book is a guide to patterns and strategies to prepare you for the role. It focuses not just on cloud technology domains and technical concepts but also on soft skills for becoming a successful solutions architect. While other books and online courses help you to upskill in a particular domain with a focus on specific services or technologies, this book provides a more fundamental understanding of the design principles and patterns that you can apply irrespective of a cloud provider. It also empowers existing solutions architects with breadth and depth of knowledge, while giving tips to become better at what they do.
What skills and knowledge will the readers gain after reading the book?
You will start by learning about the different roles of a solutions architect and their involvement in the overall enterprise landscape.
