About ten years ago, Sogeti introduced Dynamic Architecture (DYA). DYA was the start of the focus shift from blueprint architecture to just enough, just in time architecture.
The main driver for this shift was the awareness that architecture must facilitate the required speed of change. We are now on the threshold of a new focus shift: instead of focusing on internal efficiency and standardization of technology, architecture is to drive innovation by stimulating diversity and focusing on the interplay of enablers with different rhythms.
