Use bubble charts for application strategy recommendation

Bubble charts are interactive graphs that plot application indicators. You can evaluate the applications to arrive at a strategy by configuring multiple combinations of indicators in the bubble chart.

Bubble charts help to identify strategies by plotting indicator scores and other attributes of the application. You can click a category in the Category Analysis page to see the filtered applications of a category in a bubble chart.

The bubble chart page has the following sections:

  • Assessment Period: The fiscal period for which the analysis is to be done.
  • Filter Applications: Use the Filter Applications pane to filter the application categories based on the application indicators.
  • Bubble chart pane: Based on the filter criteria, the interactive bubble chart dynamically plots the metrics of the application indicator scores that fall within the filtered values.
  • Applications: Enables you to compare applications with the selected indicators. Click the Name of an application in the list to view the business application record details in the Business Application form. By clicking the Application 360 tab, you can have a complete overview of the application details in a dashboard.
