    Facing a rapidly evolving technology landscape, any organisation involved in commercial software development is being forced to cope with architectural decisions that have the potential to make or break their company going forward. There are many dimensions to consider - but David Skok of Matrix Partners did a masterful job of identifying some of the key considerations in a recent presentation…

    David is a 5-times serial entrepreneur turned VC. He writes with great insight in his For Entrepreneurs blog on topics that directly impact start-up and growth phase software companies. He’s kindly given me permission to share the presentation he made to the recent MassTLC application development conference.

    I’ve embedded the slide set below. Here are some of my key takeaways:

    • Cloud-based + Mobile Computing = Exceptional Power, leading to waves of innovation
    • Platform as a Service + Continuous Innovation + Continuous Deployment = The New Operating System for Applications, leading to much faster time to market
    • Big Data = Growing Amount of Data is Unstructured, reinforcing the need for new distributed software and data architectures

    You can watch the complete slideset here:
