Understanding Brownfield vs Greenfield Projects
The terms “greenfield project” and “brownfield project” are used in many industries besides IT, and usually the meaning is the same: greenfield describes a completely new project that has to be executed from scratch, while a brownfield project is one that has been worked on by others and is now being handed off to someone else for completion.
There are any number of factors that go into choosing whether to build upon an existing project, start from scratch or rebuild from within. Brian Geary sits down with Abdul and discusses what goes into analyzing code and overall infrastructure before beginning a project. They also chat about common red flags, and the pros and cons of scrapping legacy software.
