An organization is the root level within AMP which contains all Users, Assets and Reports for a group of users, e.g., Acme Corp. This is the location which also houses the Organization Testing Control settings, which centrally deploys a uniform testing setting for all users. This ensures that all testing for an organization is congruent across multiple users. An Organization Administrator is assigned to each organization to control these settings and other organization level configurations. Standard Users do not have access to this area within AMP.
A child organization is an organization that is created within an organization. This allows AMP to be completely scalable when deployed in large companies and organizations. Each child organization can operate interdependently with all of the capabilities of a parent organization. For example, a large university can have its root organization and each campus can be created as a child organization. This allows individual campuses to operate independently while still being part of an overall university wide accessibility initiative.
An Asset is simply a group of reports and AMP Tests. Assets can be used to model diverse IT applications or keep track of multiple versions of a single system. For example, a website asset might contain a variety of different reports relating to the PDF content on the site, a Flash movie on the site and the general content templates on the site. Assets can also be used to group subsequent audits or spiders of a site over time. For example, an asset can keep track of the 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 and 2.0 reports for a site.
A report is a snapshot of compliance at a given point in time. Reports are the result of a compliance test for a specific media type and for a specific set of modules. Reports offer a number of sortable views and a dashboard full of informational widgets. See the
