Principles and Notes

From the word 'software' alone can be deducted that this part of an IT system is likely to change. Otherwise it would be implemented in hardware.

Note: Thus, change is nothing that is new, be it due to shorter time-to-market, due to increased market pressure or due to quickly fluctuating stakeholder opinions. It's always been characteristic to software. And that's way the ever popular comparison of designing software systems with architecting a house is not at all appropriate.
