keys to successful documentation
Keys to Successful Documentation
  • Managed process to fully document application flows
  • Link views through single data source
  • Use the right tools to support the documentation process
    • Diagramming and visualization
    • Application and data flows
    • Change request system
    • Collaboration system

Issue: Application architecture flow is unclear

  • Difficult to get a clear view of
    • Software components for specific applications
    • Hardware that supports the software components
    • Interfaces and databases used by applications
  • Related flows are duplicated and out of synch
  • Diagrams drawn in applications not well suited to the need
    • Word
    • PowerPoint
    • Other drawing or illustration programs
unconnected diagrams without data

Unconnected Diagrams Without Data

Records are typically in a variety of unconnected formats

Problems

  • Changes to an application can affect others
    • Data are not updated as expected
    • Reports become unreliable
    • Business operations may be jeopardized
  • Upgrades driven by changes not identified
    • Hardware and software updates may be required
    • Application may not work properly
    • Performance may deteriorate
    • Business operations may be jeopardized

Solution: Application flows and dependencies clearly documented and managed

  • Data Graphics display data clearly
    • Application
    • Software versions
    • Server configurations
    • Connections between objects
  • Pivot diagrams produce visual reports
  • Related flows hyperlinked as “drill downs”
  • Visual information refreshed from linked data
connected information
