    Great BLOG. What is needed is a solution that can be developed in a matter of hours and not weeks (or weeks and not months) in the real world.
    If packages were all built off of plug-in infrastructures like ours, project lead and development time will definitely diminish, bugs would vastly reduce and large organization IT departments would be placed in a position to be far more responsive.

    Because of the architecture we utilize on a daily basis, we have realized this dream and live it every day. I would love to see the rest of the marketplace adopt the same.
