Analysis Help File

The General Analysis section lists analysis details by category. Several of the categories are used for classification of the technology/standard. These classifications will allow the technology/standard to be queried based upon its classification(s). Providing multiple classifications will also allow the creation of 'Classification Views' which provide a listing of all technology/standard for a specific classification.

The following table provides a description of each analysis element:
Field Name Description
Adoption Benefit The non-architectural benefits of adopting the technology/standard
Adoption Risk The non-architectural risks to the VA of adopting the technology/standard
Architectural Benefit The architecture benefits of adopting the technology/standard. In this context, architectural benefit refers to the ability of the technology/standard functionality to realize a portion of the stated architecture.
Architectural Risk The architecture risks of adopting the technology/standard

NOTE: The values for several of the classification categories on this page will evolve alongside the architecture. As the architecture becomes more defined, the classifications will also become more refined, allowing the user to select technologies/standards based upon architectural knowledge and conformance.
