    Polymorphism is an often-misunderstood concept within the developer community. Outside the community it's often a buzzword used to create an image of intellectual capital accumulating in a vault somewhere

    Polymorphism is a powerful tool in the developer's arsenal, allowing architectures to be designed and built that will be flexible enough to change with businesses' needs, yet stable enough not to require redesign and rebuild on a regular basis. Since approximately 80% of the cost of software is for maintenance, building polymorphic architectures can greatly reduce the overall cost of developing good software

    Polymorphism is extremely useful in designing enterprise-level systems, as you can create and define multiple interface layers that allow outside parties or outside software to interact with your system in a particular way.
