I'd like to see this ethos applied to all software development and integration. Everything we build these days incorporates the work of people who have gone before us. And when we use industry standards, we're leveraging the insights and experiences of our peers across business and through time.
We are very rarely asked to invent. But we're constantly asked to innovate. Different things. One of the quickest routes to innovation is to reuse existing components and artefacts in ways that add new value. Industry standards are the paradigm case of the virtue of embracing the Not Invented Here. Mueller
