This service analyzes a set of interoperating applications and their underlying infrastructure based on a handful of criteria. These criteria originate from both the purpose of the effort and the mission for which the system is intended.
This service is used for:
- Software Product Selection. Select from a number of packaged software products for incorporation into a greater system.
- Code Review. Adherence of an internal or third-party software delivery to stated standards and best practices.
- Solution Design. Peer review of a planned solution or of a planned extension to an existing solution.
- Production Readiness. Assessing the completeness and maturity of provisioning, monitoring, alerts, deployments and similar components that determine the likely carry-cost and outage frequency of a solution.
For the more innovative systems, this service is often extended to include prototyping, putting key design assumptions to the test.
