Abstract A thesis is put forward that there is a paradigm shift underway in how (information) systems, and the software which supports them, are developed. The shift is away from a craft-based structure in which user requirements are specified and custom solutions developed, to a market-generated, product-based approach in which users themselves select and arrange meaningful-to-them components as solutions to their requirements. There are several drivers to this shift. First, there are the numerous problems inherent in the methods now being used (expensive, time-consuming, myopic, inflexible). Second, there is a software technology objects which enables such a shift to take place. This paper examines these drivers, the ensuing development paradigm shift, and some of its many implications.
