  7. Have the business and information requirements been analyzed and documented to the lowest level of detail necessary to form actionable recommendations?

  8. Do examples of architectural models or artifacts relate to the definition of architecture and relate to its enterprise ontology?

  9. What does the To-Be conceptual solution architecture need to include to fulfill the desired target performance?
