GLUE Tailoring Domains

In my last posts I have explored the GLUE Space.

And looked deeper into GLUE Domains. One example domain is the Application Life Cycle Management:

“Caress the detail, the divine detail.”,
Vladimir Nabokov (1899 - 1977)

By looking closer some problems become visible. One System of Systems can contain a large amount of Applications. The number can easily extend thousand Applications.  So GLUE oversimplifies here. To cover for that a closer look into the domains is needed. Due to the differences there is a high likelihood that the same approach can not be applied. Therefore I prefer to specialize inside a domain:
If looking at Application Life Cycle Management (or any other Domain) even though that the same mechanics are applied (GLUE Disciplines) the specifics make the difference. Something which is often to be heard as "this is special". At the same moment in time suppliers and integrators create their own methodologies and bring them to the market to defend against the others. If inside the GLUE Space in a Corporation the specialities can be captured by mapping them to the right domain and then seek in that domain for the commonalities.

So something like Governance to ensure that one area applies the same rules and follows them belongs into the same domain than the activity. I will touch upon that when I did into Roles & Responsibilities as promised. Important here is that not everything is the same, but can be mapped in the GLUE Space.
