|What does landscaping mean?
It implies a broad view of the domain of interest, for example:
Ø What products are available?
Ø What user needs do they serve?
Ø Which suppliers are out there, and how do they rank in importance?
Ø Who are the buyers, and why do they buy?
Ø What technologies predominate, and how will that change in the future?
Ø How large is the domain, and how is its size evolving?
You get the idea. I also believe that most people see landscaping as a high-level activity. We're not trying to examine every product in detail, every nuance of demand, every technological twist. We're just trying to understand .... well, the landscape.
