Today's Enterprise Applications Have New Requirements
With increased competition, lower projected e-commerce profit margins, increased legal issues, and new IT management requirements, three things are expected in today's enterprise applications:
solutions that rely on a layered architecture that leverages reuse and dynamic, scalable solutions that can be easily changed to meet new business needs.
Speed to market—
a focus on the business domain and not the application infrastructure can help meet the ever-growing strategic application backlog. By using a repeatable standard development process that reuses legacy information and systems, a development team can begin to bring solutions to the marketplace sooner.
by protecting assets, legally and technically, an IT organization can not only produce flexible solutions, it can also give the enterprise a strategic advantage in the marketplace.
