What's Wrong with Application Software? It's the Economics


Enterprise architecture is a technology problem, not the business problem. The business problem is time, money, and quality. Focusing on modifications as an example, the reason that modifications are bad is that they take too long, cost too much, and often have quality issues.

What was impossible with traditional architecture may become practical for the business with next enterprise architecture. This will allow us to rethink and challenge some of the basic rules of application software. We can look at places where the application software rules of thumb do not match the realities of business. In follow-on articles, we Read More
