Enterprise architecture and Organic Growth

I’d like to talk a bit about Organic Growth in IT.

Lets say we have a Client that is using a nightly-batch flow to handle the data-processing. Running everything on a single server was fine earlier but the number of transactions is rising, due to new business and take-overs. And now they’ve run out of “night-hours” – the batch-flow into the early working hours of the next day. The disks are also running full since the processing is replicating data between IT systems.

What do we do and why did this happen?
