The Insights Dashboard#

Insights Dashboard

The Insights Dashboard automatically gathers and visually portrays all key information about your objects. In this case, the dashboard displays extended information about the "Partner System (PAS)" application component, or more precisely its application score, surrounding application components and used system software.

Master Data Management#

CRUD Matrix

The Matrix shows your application components, the information they access in form of business objects, as well as the degree of data manipulation using the "Read/Write" method. Based on this graph, we see there’s data redundancy within the organization, meaning that the existing application components manipulate the data in a form which they are not allowed to.

  1. Click on "Find" from the navigation menu on top.
  2. Expand the "Search options and filters".
  3. Click the "Object" filter and select "Application Component".
  4. Select the displayed results.
  5. Right-click the selected objects and select "Reports" from the context menu.
  6. Choose "Matrix" and then "Application Component > accesses> Business Object".
  7. Click the icon "Change visualization" on the upper right-hand corner of the screen and select "Access".

Detailed Look at the Applications Portfolio#

Portfolio View

The portfolio view compares all your application components based on certain criteria. In this instance, the application portfolio is evaluated based on IT Fitness, Business Fitness and Strategic Importance. From this, we can see that the „Partner System (PAS)" application component is evaluated insufficiently, in terms of its IT and Business Fitness.

  1. Click on "Find".
  2. Expand the "Search options and filters".
  3. Click the "Object" filter and select "Application Component".
