13 Modernization Update 13 Project Goal: To establish a modular architecture that supports easier updates in the future. The desired changes will result in improved efficiency and enhanced services to the users. Important attributes and architectural challenges to be considered will be identified via a Workshop which will include participants from all stakeholder groups, scheduled for August. The amount of design required for the modernization is dependent upon the high priority Quality Attributes identified during the Architecture workshop.
