BRManifesto FAQ: Article 10 - Managing Business Logic, Not Hardware/Software Platforms
FAQ re: Principle 10.3
Question: What does Manifesto mean by "hardware/software platforms" in principle 10.3?
Business rules should be organized and stored in such a way that they can be readily redeployed to new hardware/software platforms.
The intended sense is "machines or software systems capable of supporting some type of business activity". The same thought applies, however, to new business capabilities (i.e., to viewing some new part of the business as a "system").
FAQ re: Principle 10.4
Question: What is the sense of "adaptability" in Manifesto principle 10.4?
Rules, and the ability to change them effectively, are fundamental to improving business adaptability.
The intended sense is "an ability to adjust nimbly to changing circumstances, emerging risks, or new opportunities" - in other words, agility.
 The Manifesto is free, only 2 pages long, translated into 15 languages. Have a quick look (or re-look!). No sign up required. Well worth your time.
