Integration challenges in an ERP-heavy world — Pt 2
In the first part of this two-part episode, we looked at the challenges encountered when an agile software development mindset runs up against ERP-heavy integration environments. Here we look at some of the solutions that can ease the path toward legacy modernization.
There’s growing interest in empowering non-developers to perform tasks that previously only programmers could do. This can help the enterprise deliver useful things quicker and free up developers to focus on more critical stuff. But challenges emerge when moving the citizen-developer-built applications to production scale. Our podcast team explores the possibilities and problems of democratizing programming.
Integration challenges in an ERP-heavy world
Enterprise resource planning systems remain business-critical for many organizations. But these decades-old and often highly customized systems weren’t designed to operate in a modern, distributed manner. This throws up huge integration challenges when organizations want to explore how to embrace new digital opportunities. We look at how to overcome some of these challenges.
Models of open sourcing software
Open source has become an important model for building interest and trust in a software project. But there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to open source. In this episode our podcasters explore different ways to approach open source and examine whether end-of-life has to mean obsolescence.
Applying software engineering practices to data science
The need for high quality information at speed has never been greater thanks to competition and the impact of the global pandemic. Here, our podcast team explores how data science is helping the enterprise respond: What new tools and techniques show promise? When does bias become a problem in data sets? What can DevOps teach data scientists about how to work?
Using visualization tools to understand large polyglot code bases
Code visualization tools can be a great way to understand the intricacies of large code bases but they can be problematic when dealing with very old or very new code sets. Our co-hosts Rebecca Parsons and Ashok Subramanian are joined by Erik Dörnenburg and Korny Sietsma to look at the benefits and challenges of code visualization, especially when dealing with multiple programming languages.
Customer ReviewsSee All
I love ThoughWorks podcasts, this is one of the best ways of learning technology and business directly from the industry experts. For some reason the audio recoding is not consistent or tuned for Podcasts. For example if you listed to Microservices as complex systems podcast - the guest speaker James Lewis. James' voice sounds like he is speaking in a conference room far away from microphone. The listener has to put a lot of effort to listed to these which is not desrirable. Can Thoughworks do some post-processing to enhance the listening experience before publishing the podcasts ?
