The technology standards are divided into three categories:
– This list consists of standards that are currently being drafted reviewed, and pending approval.
– This list contains those standards that have been approved by the Architectural Standards Committee and KIDS leadership.
- This list contains those KIDS internal standards that have been reviewed by the Architectural Standards Committee and approved by KIDS leadership.
Architectural Standards are classified in 3 primary categories. These categories help define the expectations established for the standard.
Standard recommendations are categorized as follows:
1. Technical Standard - KDE provides technical specification recommendations that are not tied to a product. Spec can aid in product selection or as a guideline for system design. Standard documentation specifies whether it is considered voluntary or required. There can also be provisions for grandfathering in existing systems if appropriate.
2. Product Standard - KDE contract driven for a specific solution. Product selection may have more than one solution but is limited to items on contract.
3. Guidelines – Fall into two categories
a. Operational Guidance on how to most effectively utilize existing Product Standard
b. Technical Guidance may be required where a 3rd party product has been purchased and lays on top of a Product Standard (i.e.: Exchange 2006, Proxy 2.0)
