From Business Questions to Ardoq Model - Presentation

Presentations are a great way to show the status or answer to our business questions - as well as share this across the organization and with other stakeholders.

The presentation is available here, please follow the slides along the way:

To summarize the questions we want answered:

What are the most critical capabilities and the supporting applications?

What is the overall cost of the application portfolio and what applications are missing business owner?


First question

We will start with a view of all our Capabilities, and Applications - in dependency map. My context is the Workspace of Capabilities, and since we have a reference from our Capabilities to ur Applications we get a great view without doing any perspectives at all.

I am saving this as the first slide to our presentation, because it shows all our Capabilities with supporting Applications. Slide two shows a reversed view of the same, so the focus is on the Application and what Capabilities its supports.

Since we have created a field on our Capabilities showing criticality, we highlight our capabilities with High criticality in red and add to our Presentation. This is done via formatting. See slide 3 in the presentation for how it looks.

Now we have answered our first business question.


Second question

To show the total Cost of our Application portfolio, we choose the Treemap view as it can give us aggregated numbers. This view show us number fields on components as well as an aggregated view on the top:

See slide 4 in the presentation for this view, as well as slide 5 for the Spider Chart which gives us the same information in another way.

Slide 6 is a table view which gives us a good overview of all our Applications fields. This table view can be used for showing us who is the business owner of different applications, and can be sorted if you click on the top "Business Owner". By sorting you can also see applications missing a business owner, but we will create a filter for this to only see these Applications in the last slide.

All done, ready to share! 🚀

Note

There are many other ways to visualize data and answer questions in Ardoq. For example can Dashboards be a way to show all this in one single view, see this article for more information.
