Organizations designing systems are constrained to outline system architectures which reflect the communication structures of these organizations. All enterprise architecture investments to pay off, the solution need to adequately factor in organizational structure and needs Conway’s law states,"Organizations which design systems are constrained to produce system which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations".Systems, information flows and processes reflect the structural and organizational needs of an enterprise. Organizations build their IT landscape that mirror their own structure and organization. Sean Mcgrath writes, some think that the role of middleware in enterprises is somehow to eradicate all the back-roads and corridors of un-controlled information flow that Conway's Law tells us exist. The idea that computing can liberate an organization from the messy, wet complexity of human, social interactions and replace it with shiny, dry, metallic laser beams of rationalized, straight line logic is far fetched.
