Domain-Driven Design (DDD)
Workshops, presentations and advising.
Software is only as valuable as the importance of the problem it solves. Domain-Driven Design (DDD) helps us solve the most important problem and ensure the software speaks your business's language. It makes it more effective, easy to understand, and flexible enough to evolve with your business needs.
DDD is an approach to software design based on the understanding of the domain, explored in collaboration with domain experts. It was initially explained by Eric Evans.
As one of our three cornerstones (alongside Theory of Constraints and Extreme programming), DDD has been at the core of factor10s methodology since the beginning. These are the three most important reasons why our relationship with DDD is as strong as ever:
In close collaboration with your domain experts, we collect insights about your business domain and establish a domain model and a common language that both technical and non-technical stakeholders understand and can collaborate around. This is the perfect starting point for most business-orienting software initiatives, making strategic priorities and decision-making easier.
A flexible and adaptive software architecture bridges a deep understanding of the business domain with a modular and flexible codebase with a long lifespan. In synergy, they enable the software to evolve as business requirements change over time.
We know DDD and are happy to share our insights and experience. Our consultants have conducted a large number of workshops, trainings, and presentations over the years. One of us has even written a book on the topic. We're happy to help you improve your organization's capability to develop code that speaks your business's language.
