The development of agility is part of the changing infrastructure of IT in general, in which entrenched monolithic views of information processing give way to a vision of multiple users, multiple developers, and multiple devices interacting to form something greater than the sum of its parts. Like complex adaptive mechanisms, the new infrastructure is responsive at the cellular level, whether that is the app, the device, the developer, or the user. It becomes more akin to a nervous system than to a department and extends across both business and personal life through the use of BYOD and BYOA, social media, and dwindling boundaries between personal and work time.
