Built to change - With Business Rules!

In his blog, Annraí O'Toole discusses building for change. In particular he quotes Roy Schulte of Gartner

Roy suggested that in the past, most applications were "built to last" -- their longevity and robustness was the most prized features about the application.

He goes on to say "We still need the application to be reliable and robust, it just needs to be easier to change" and that "Using services to enable rapid change is probably the most important trend for the next five years!".
