2-dimensional biplot of the full 13-characteristic dataset. Advanced Security is the dominant variable (i.e. the vector with the greatest magnitude) of the solution driven largely by cases 27, 6 and 33. Diametrically opposed to Advanced Security is Massive Scale and Low Cost Software, driven largely by case 11. Virtualisation, Resource Pooling and Service Orientation contribute little to the solution. Other associations are evident, e.g. orthogonal to these are Measured Service and Geographic Distribution driven by case 16, and opposed to this is Homogeneity driven strongly by case 13
