Lesson 150 - Quantitative vs. Qualitative Analysis  
(posted December 4, 2022)

You can use architecture fitness functions (described in Lesson 73) to perform some sort of objective integrity assessment of some sort of architecture characteristic. A good example of this is in Lesson 71 - Measuring Scalability. The use of observability and metrics is an example of "quantitative analysis". But what if metrics don’t exist yet or you are building a new system? That’s where "qualitative analysis" comes in. In this lesson Mark Richards shows the differences between quantitative analysis and qualitative analysis and how to use each within architecture to make better decisions.
