Application Portfolio Management portal

The Application Portfolio Management portal gives you an enterprise-wide applications landscape view of the number of applications and other key metrics. As an enterprise architect (EA) you can view and access all the APM modules from this portal.

You can navigate to the Application Portfolio Management portal page by clicking Application Portfolio Management > Home. The role required is sn_apm.apm_analyst.

The Application Portfolio Management portal consists of four sections, which provide a quick access to view the architectures of capability hierarchy, applications, technology, and create ideas, goals and programs:

The APM home page shows the capability hierarchy map, applications view, technology portfolio, and other key metrics.
Business Architecture
View the number of business capabilities defined by your organization that have been assessed and are yet to be assessed, and the number of business applications that support the capabilities but are at a major risk. Click to view the capability map in a new tab that displays the business capabilities and sub-capabilities in a hierarchy.
Application Architecture
Track the applications that support your business capabilities and manage them effectively to fulfil your organization's goals. It provides the list of applications with information such as their category, manufacturer, and type. Analyze your applications by category or family and group them the way you want to in the application landscape view. You can directly navigate to the Group Analysis page to analyze the applications and their scores.
Technology Architecture
View the technologies or the software models that underlie your business applications. The software models have to be tracked for their end of life date internally within the enterprise and the retirement date set externally by the publisher. Use the timeline view to know the current status of the software models lifecycle.
Opportunities & Solutions
View the number and click to view the list of programs and goals. You can also view the number of ideas related to your business applications. Click any goal, idea, or a program in the list to update it with additional details. Use the Create link to directly create a program, goal, or an idea.
  • Create a program to link and track the ideas to meet the goals. APM takes you through a process to add targets, identify opportunities, and so on.
  • Create a goal to track, align, and report the progress of the work towards it. For example, a goal could be set to reduce Capex or reduce the number of applications within a target date.
  • Create an idea to decide on a strategy for the application.
