a place to work on good practice on innovation layer (re PACE Layer from
innovation listed as competency. how to innovate that roll into production. It’s
about learning.
creating a strategy to access data. modifying existing practices as well.
realigning security to have a common model as well.

mostly from google, or lucid in google. non-proprietary
