The Technology Council is responsible

  • for building the overall technical architecture, including defining technical guidelines

The Technology Council also defines OW2's architecture vision, it validates the founding charters of Projects and Initiatives and it approves reuse of non-OW2 code into Projects and Initiatives.

The Technology Council provides guidelines to the Management Office (the infrastructure runners) regarding  the evolution of the OW2 technical platform.
