ABSTRACT
Technologists act as if the "REST vs. RPC" debate is purely technical, but technology choices are never really quite so black and white. This column examines the non-intuitive theories and evidence behind Clayton Christensen's "innovator's dilemma" to explore technology life cycles, discuss what makes different customers choose different technologies, and consider how different types of innovation affect the evolution of integration products.
INDEX TERMS
