Some comments on this presentation:
- There are no more 'green field'. You can go to a company and start an application from scratch, you always need to integrate with something.
- There are no 'legacy applications'. A company is always in an evolution process so the todays applications need to integrate with tomorrow's one and the this ones with the past. Applications must be designed for integration.
- You can't choose the perfect platform and move everything to it, because in the future the perfect platform will be another.
