Associate a business service to a software model

Business applications have multiple instances such as development, QA, and production. Instances are nothing but business services. Hence business services must be associated with software models to know the risk of the business service.

Before you begin

Role required: sn_apm.apm_user

Procedure

  1. Navigate to Application Portfolio Management > Technology Portfolio Management (TPM) > Business Services.
  2. Click the business service record to which you want to associate the software models.
  3. Click the Business Service Software Models related list.

    The business service software model information is stored in Business Service Software Models (sn_apm_tpm_service_software_model) database table.

  4. Click New and fill in the form fields.
    Table 1. Business Service Software Model form
    Field Description
    Application Business Service Name of the business service.
    Ignore Technical Risk Check box to ignore the technical risk of the software model.

    Since the risk of a business service is high even if one of its underlying software models risk is high, use this check box to ignore the risk of a software model if it is insignificant and does not contribute much to the risk of the business service.

    Primary Software Model Check box to make the software model as a primary one.
    Software Model The software model that underlies the business service.
  5. Click Submit.

What to do next

Create risk parameter scores to evaluate the risk of the software model. Based on the risk of the software model you can calculate the risk of the business service. Finally, based on the risk of the business service you can evaluate the risk of the business application.
