Using WordPress as a Platform for Complex Enterprise Applications

WordPress is great for blogs but when large corporations ask agencies to use WordPress they increasingly want complex custom applications instead of just a fancy blog. And while out-of-the-box WordPress is an awesome solution for blog-oriented websites, typical WordPress theming techniques can result in an application that becomes exponentially more difficult to maintain as more functionality is added.
