This page is a signpost to the details on the R&D work being undertaken to help create our new applications strategy and approach. The content itself is held on the wiki at http://abigbang.wikidot.com

The plan is to split R&D into 3 distinct stages:

1. Conceptual: researching and testing the assumptions and concepts that our strategic vision is based on. For example in the sphere of applications our concepts include service orientation, business process focus and contextual access.

2. Architectural: understanding the logical building blocks that we will need in order to realise the concepts.

3. Technical: identifying the products and technologies that can best fulfil the roles defined by the architecture, taking constraints (historical, commercial etc) into account.
