One Gartner analyst defines Technical Debt as "the deviation of an application from non-functional requirements". Wikipedia's definition states "Technical debt (also known as design debt or code debt) is a concept in software development that reflects the implied cost of additional rework caused by choosing an easy solution now instead of using a better approach that would take longer."


The Tech Council will periodically (at least annually) survey the FOLIO codebase and technical environment (including existing requests and/or JIRA issues) and make recommendations to the Product Council on timetables to remediate items.
