CORE SOLUTION or CORE MODULE - Is There A Difference?

We have been asked by some of our customers if the terms solution and module are interchangeable, so we thought we would clear up the confusion, that more than likely has been caused by us, so we apologize.


Solution is a term used to describe a ‘grouping’ of products (Modules) that address a high level Use Case. Example: IT Risk and Security Risk Management is a Solution. Products (Modules) that support the high level Use Case are Security Operations, VRM, PERC for IT Risk, Threat, etc.


Solutions currently include: ITSRM, Regulatory & Corporate Compliance, Operational Risk, Audit, Business Resiliency, Third Party Governance.


Module is the specific Archer product(s) that customers purchase – Audit Management,  Business Continuity Management, Compliance Management, Enterprise Management, Federal Assessment and Authorization, Federal Continuous Monitoring, Incident Management, Issue Management, Policy Management, Risk Management, Security Operation Management 1.1, Security Operations Management 1.2, Threat Management, Vendor Management, and Vulnerability Risk Management.
