Adviser's Guidance module brings together information from all the other modules to make a recommendation on a forward path for each database. Its recommendation is based on a combination of the application usage, the design complexity, and the Business Value of each database. You may also override the recommendation in cases where you already have a plan for a given database. The Guidance module’s recommendation will be one of four options: retain, archive, retire, or generic.

Armed with this information, you can confidently begin rewriting, archiving, retiring, or replacing your applications.
