While i was reading through a paper, to understand the application life cycle i have come across how the technology development focus has changed. I see we have been doing the development almost the way the Today’s software are visualized, designed.

Yesterday’s technologies, teams, applications Today’s technologies, teams, applications
Designed to last Designed to change
Tightly coupled Loosely coupled, modular
Integrated silos Compositions (of services, of applications)
Code-oriented Process-oriented
Rigid sequential development Interactive and iterative development
Cost-centered Business-oriented
Homogeneous Heterogeneous

The above tabular representation describes the direction development is moving towards. Features/Dashboards of a website are visualized to be plug-in, that works more by enable/disable methodology.  Layers of a framework are designed to interact collectively or provide a service independently.
