agile architecting

The whole IT world "is" / claims to be / wants to be agile today, which reminds me of the days when the hype was about multimedia ... every CD out on the market was multimedia.

  • having a parallel platform team to deal with non-business, purely technical stuff
  • new architecture optimizations and improvements being much later needed than estimated
