Data Analyzer

A data analyzer helps you visually analyze your architecture assets by breaking them into assessment categories based on Gartner's TIME model. This approach comes in handy when conducting portfolio management such as Application Portfolio Management (APM) or Product Portfolio Management.

Leadership teams can use the data analyzer to understand current and future investments across various areas and portfolios their organizations and groups own. To achieve such overarching visibility and transparency, technical team members can capture the data and assessments. On the other hand, the leadership team, having access to the same subscription, can leverage the data analyzer to obtain situational awareness.

To access the analyzer, open one of your existing projects and click on the "Analyze Data" navigation button. To conduct meaningful analysis, we recommend that you assign the assessment to every relevant object in your project, which you can do via the object editor dialog of the catalog designer.

Default View

By default, the data analyzer finds all objects in the current project, checks their assessment categories, and displays the stats visually. The unknown category captures all objects that have no assigned assessment. All other categories will display underneath the unknown group across two axes: Business (functional) fit and Technical (quality) fit.

Filtering Object Types

In many cases, you will want to filter the object types that the data analyzer considers. For example, you may select Application object types for Application Portfolio Management (APM). To do so, click on the "All object types" link, which indicates the currently selected filter. Consequently, the object type selector dialog opens, where you can select or deselect the types that the analyzer captures. After hitting the "Done" button, the analyzer's charts refresh, and the screen will reflect the new information.
