Solutions, previously known as Use Cases, are Ardoq’s best practice approach on how to solve specific objectives or achieve a specific outcome. They help you realize value as fast as possible by providing a technique and pre-made assets that can be populated with data to deliver business outcomes. Solutions are for everyone looking for a fast and easy way to solve problems and generate insights quickly. For more information, please read What Are Ardoq’s Solution Guides and Who Can Use Them.

What is Included in a Solution?

Each solution comes with a guide and a set of pre-made assets that can help you get started quickly. They do not contain sample data, meaning you will need to provide your own data to the appropriate workspaces.

The guides can be found linked in the section above or in Ardoq Solutions in the app.

The potential types of assets a solution can include are:

  • Metamodel (Component & Reference Types, Fields)

  • Workspaces

  • Perspectives

  • Viewpoints

  • Presentations

  • Import & Integration templates

  • Surveys

  • Broadcasts

  • Dashboards

  • Advanced & Gremlin Queries

  • Dedicated guide and knowledge base article

Note: Access to pre-made assets is included in all customer price plans with the exception of pre-made viewpoints and scenarios, which require Discover and Scenario paid add-ons.

How to Launch a Solution

To download all pre-made assets within a solution to your organization, click on the Ardoq Solutions module in the left-side navigation bar.

The Application Lifecycle Management solution is selected by default. To see other solutions, simply browse the dropdown menu at the top left corner of the screen.

Next, click on the “Add solutions materials'' button at the top right corner of the screen. Finally, select “Add solution materials'' on the “Add solution materials?” confirmation modal to complete the process. You will receive confirmation that the pre-made assets have been successfully downloaded once you see a green success message at the top right corner of the screen.

You can find the solution materials in the Home page under the Asset Library. Please do not rename the Use Case Materials folder. This folder is used across all solutions, and it is where materials for other solutions will be downloaded to.

Please note: All pre-made assets do not include sample data. After downloading these assets, you will need to configure them with your own data by choosing the appropriate workspaces.

Removing All Solution Materials From an Organization

Pre-made solution assets can easily be removed from an organization. This can be done by selecting the Use Case Materials folder from the Home page and selecting the delete option.

This deletes all pre-made assets that are in the Assets library (workspaces, presentations, surveys, metamodels, and folders). The collateral outside of the Asset library (broadcasts, queries, dashboards, perspectives) will need to be removed individually.

Note: If you need to re-download a solution with changes, you must first delete the Use Case Materials folder in Ardoq. Please do not rename the Use Case Materials directory.

FAQ

  • Who can access Ardoq Solutions?

    Ardoq Solutions is available to all Ardoq customers. Only admin users can download pre-made assets to their organization.

  • When is best to download a solution?

    The easiest way to get started with Solutions is to download them to your organization before loading any other data. This will download the metamodel that you need to follow for faster time to value. After you have implemented one solution, you can extend with more solutions that are relevant to achieve your objectives.

  • Will my existing data be affected if I download a solution?

    No. Pre-made solution assets will not impact any existing data that has been loaded into Ardoq. This means that solutions can be downloaded to an organization at any time without impacting previous work.
