We are moving into a new generation of Big Data and advanced analytics; an era of distributed processing and storage combined with capability to link innumerable processing engines together on an ad hoc basis to create a capability for somewhat ubiquitous cognitive computing.
It will become possible to link not just one but a number of predictive capacities together to create a mechanism for independent decision making that far exceeds the possibilities of a single machine language solution.
By broadening the scope of existing skills within project teams, it becomes possible to build upon existing specialties, retain valuable knowledge that exists within the firm, and create a Development environment that better meets business requirements.

The brittle organization will have problems in meeting changing business conditions, and it will also be less resilient and under greater threat from sudden problems such as natural disaster or catastrophic shifts in the market or in technology.
