"Innovation" and "innovative architecture" are topics of broad popularity in software engineering. Yet, the two terms appear to mean different things to different people—with interpretations of both driven more by personal interests than by their true meanings. It's therefore essential for architects to have a clear understanding of what "innovation" means in the context of their projects if they are to make the right design decisions and communicate the intended messages to project stakeholders.
