Tightly Coupled - An inflexible architectural approach to the connection between two or more computer systems that are exchanging data. Tightly-coupled connections can be difficult to change. In contrast, loosely-coupled systems are more flexible and are considered useful when either the source or the destination computer systems are subject to frequent changes.
