What is the Tech Radar?
The Vermietet.de Tech Radar is a list of technologies, complemented by an assessment result, called
ring assignment. We use four rings with the following semantics:
ADOPT — Technologies we have high confidence in to serve our purpose, also in large scale.
Technologies with a usage culture in our Vermietet.de production environment, low risk and recommended
to be widely used.
TRIAL — Technologies that we have seen work with success in project work to solve a real
problem; first serious usage experience that confirm benefits and can uncover limitations. TRIAL
technologies are slightly more risky; some engineers in our organization walked this path and will
share knowledge and experiences.
ASSESS — Technologies that are promising and have clear potential value-add for us; technologies
worth to invest some research and prototyping efforts in to see if it has impact. ASSESS technologies
have higher risks; they are often brand new and highly unproven in our organisation. You will find
some engineers that have knowledge in the technology and promote it, you may even find teams that
have started a prototyping effort.
HOLD — Technologies not recommended to be used for new projects. Technologies that we think
are not (yet) worth to (further) invest in. HOLD technologies should not be used for new projects,
but usually can be continued for existing projects.
