Relationships are defined in detail in Relationships and Relationship Connectors.

  1. (Noun) Primarily used to depict the connections between (or interactions with) data objects.

    Description: An important aspect of the IT4IT Reference Architecture is to define not only the data objects but the essential relationships between them. The data objects, combined with their relationships and inter-dependencies, form the “system of record fabric” for digital management (see Relationship Notation and IT4IT End-to-End Traceability (System of Record Fabric)).
