Excellent article - really enjoyed the introduction to layers and
patterns that this gives.
When you add this to the OASIS BCM work on use of layers and templates
and patterns then you
see how empowering all this is.
We're still feeling our way here - but my sense is that both BCM and
this article are shining the
light in the right direction for the future of systems development and
business solution deployment.
Tools like ebXML BPSS then provide the implementation layer pattern
orchestrating this, along with EPR and EUD work for the front-office
layers, with tools like
XDS providing the core information sharing, identity and privacy management.
