Abstract

The products or services offered by enterprises today increasingly depend on information products realized by the corporate IT department. Often the time to market of a product is significantly affected by the time it takes to realize its IT-enabled aspects. In this regard, minimizing realization time within the IT department often becomes the essential factor for bringing a given product to market earlier than the competition.

This chapter proposes a methodology for determining a measure of how the integration styles of given IT systems affect the ability of these systems to adapt to changing requirements.
