  • Assumptions: Fully burdened head count cost is $200,000 per year ($3,846 per week) for an architectand $150,000 per year for a project manager or security administrator.Gartner impact:Architects: Accelerate decisions about standards, patterns and other architectural design (reduce discovery time, and help avoid bad decisions early on) with Reference Architecture.Architects: Form a comprehensive baseline for customized strategy after extensive research on SOA, with in-depth research reports.Developers: Freed from deep involvement, the work they would contribute is already present in our in-depth research reports. Involvement is then focused on testing a limited set of choices rather than the whole spectrum.Operations manager: Get organization-specific answers from analysts to strategic and technical questions.Team: Get up to speed more quickly on vendor offerings using reports and overviews; streamline RFP development and final product selection after one-on-one discussions with analysts.
