There has been a phenomenal growth in autonomous business services, fuelled largely by the internet and e-business. New business architectures are emerging, in which an enterprise is configured as a dynamic network of components providing business services to one another. Component-Based Business constitutes a radical challenge and tries to help improve how we think through the practical difficulties and opportunities of the component based business. "In this work so far, Richard challenges conventional thinking with a sometimes breathtaking series of lateral thoughts that are essential reading for the component architect, designer and their customer. Strongly recommended." David Sprott, Principal Analyst, CBDi Forum
