Event Maturity Description
Alpha Early proposal for an event message, high risk of change.
Beta The event design has been agreed and is intended to become the release candidate but has not been proved through development and testing, therefore there is a risk that changes may be required.
Release Candidate The event has been through a development and testing phase, followed by a successful DVP in live use. The event message should not change unless as a result of a live issue.
Released Event is being widely used and is unlikely to change, unless a change is required as a result of a live issue.
