Can Every Business Be Like Netflix?

by

Welcome to the new podcast, Software Ate My Homework! On the pod, we will be exploring issues related to:

  • Upholding software quality best practices 
  • Addressing technical debt in application modernization 
  • Reducing software risk while deploying at speed (i.e. implementing quality gates as part of Agile and DevOps processes)
  • Getting the most value from cloud migration investments 
  • Strengthening application security training and development methodologies

In our first episode, Can Every Business Be Like Netflix?, we examine what enterprise dev teams can learn from digital-natives like Netflix and how these teams should balance release velocity, technical debt management and designing for functionality. 

You can listen right here:



Netflix has a market cap that’s the envy of any large enterprise. By comparison, enterprise execs can feel that their IT organization just isn't measuring up to what Silicon Valley startups can deliver. As a part of this dynamic, release rate and cycle time have become key metrics for app dev organizations to demonstrate their success. 

Organizations like DORA support this in their 2018 Accelerate State of DevOps Report. Their research concludes that higher rates of release improve system reliability, not diminish it. But where does this leave teams on technical debt reduction

Listen now for our analysis. And as always, you can learn more and subscribe to the pod here! Happy listening, podsters. 

  This report describes the effects of different industrial factors on  structural quality. Structural quality differed across technologies with COBOL  applications generally having the lowest densities of critical weaknesses,  while JAVA-EE had the highest densities. While structural quality differed  slightly across industry segments, there was almost no effect from whether the  application was in- or outsourced, or whether it was produced on- or off-shore.  Large variations in the densities in critical weaknesses across applications  suggested the major factors in structural quality are more related to  conditions specific to each application.

Open source is part of almost every software capability we use today. At the  very least libraries, frameworks or databases that get used in mission critical  IT systems. In some cases entire systems being build on top of open source  foundations. Since we have been benchmarking IT software for years, we thought  we would set our sights on some of the most commonly used open source software  (OSS) projects.
