Jimmy Nilsson makes a case for DDD explaining that while DDD uses some similar elements as DB-driven design does, for example, entities and repositories, the difference is in how they are used, the way the design is approached and elaborated, building on collaboration and feedback, incorporating deep domain knowledge, having as end result: reduced complexity, testability, and maintainability.
