A technology collaboration represents an aggregate of two or more technology internal active structure elements that work together to perform collective technology behavior.
A technology collaboration specifies which nodes and/or other technology collaborations cooperate to perform some task. The collaborative behavior, including, for example, the communication pattern of these nodes, is modeled by a technology interaction. A technology collaboration typically models a logical or temporary collaboration of nodes and does not exist as a separate entity in the enterprise.
EPRI EA Note:
Useful for modeling complex infrastructure/systems at an abstract level e.g. Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI), SCADA, Telecommunications or the power grid.
