Summary

Whenever different participants in a system have different goals and requirements, there is a potential for conflict. This is particularly true in a new industry such as Internet commerce, where there are few established standards. Our advice is to build a list of the participants in your system and to be very clear about their goals, interests, and agendas.

Understanding the participants, their goals, and their interests is very important in framing both the business problem and the technical challenges to be overcome. Framing those problems and developing a core approach to solving them is the process of developing an architecture for the system, which we consider in the next chapter.
