As development organizations rush towards microservices and CI/CD, they're finding that their present understanding of their architectures fail to enable agility. A visible architecture is a physical model of a system created by architecture teams using Duplo® bricks, with strings representing data flows. Visible architectures enable teams to collaboratively understand the “as-is” architecture and make better choices on the “to-be” architecture.

The structured, yet creative freedom afforded by the technique enables teams to explore challenging concepts. For example, in one project, teams from Cisco represented known problems as “monsters” and outdated technologies as “dinosaurs” using plastic toys. In another project, teams from Rackspace used Visible Architectures as means to rapidly integrate acquired technologies.

In this talk Luke will present an overview of the process, how to document desired changes in a structured manner, and how to augment Visible Architectures with powerful business frameworks that enable architects to "speak the business language" necessary to convert models into realities.
