Remarks on business cases for metapattern/KnitbITs
Along the synchronous dimension, contexts unambiguously control differences.
Temporal dimension: the rule is that information resources may change. As integrated information resources, contexts are variable, too.
Contexts provide flexibility.
Contexts support incremental development: management of change.
Contexts eliminate duplication: information is a single difference.
No more information interference: operational work savings, transparant audit trails, increased focus on immediate action.
‘Outsource’ non-proprietary information resources: participate in information value chains.
