(A talk given at PIPELINE Conference – March 2018 – Disentangle the Data Enterprise Spaghetti to continuous delivery – https://pipelineconf.info/speakers/)

“Are you working Agile but not doing twice the work in half the time? Does your Enterprise Architecture look like a spaghetti? Or is continuous delivery not working for you? Well, this is often the case at most enterprises… And, it is perfectly explainable why this happens.

Join me in this talk, about an enterprise trying to move faster with agile and continuous delivery, but actually finds itself slowed down and getting more entangled because of Conway’s Law. We will show how we used Event Storming to create a Context Map to get grip on the language and communication within the company. Then, we show by using the inverse of Conway’s Law how we disentangled the spaghetti into teams that can deliver continuous.”
