Active

The Active view indicates how many Applications you used (were active) and how many were phasing out at each point in time.

Age Structure

Cost Analysis

Business Capability Cost

This report gives you an overview of which Business Capabilities are supported by which applications and how much does this support costs you annually. It helps you to understand the cost allocation per business capability and to analyze where costs could be reduced. 

Provider Cost

In this report you can see the cost allocation per provider.  

Project Cost Tracking

This report shows you the costs of the different projects. It helps you to understand how your budget is consumed by the different projects and it gives you control over project budget and project cost.

Heat Map

Application Landscape

This report gives you an overview of your IT landscape at a certain point of time or in a time frame. It shows you the IT support of your Business Capabilities. 

Lifecycle

In the Lifecycle view the color of the boxes indicates the current status of the application. leanIX differentiates five phases: plan, phase in, active, phase out and end of life.

Business Criticality

In the Business Criticality view the color of the boxes indicates how critical/important an application is for your Business. leanIX differentiates between Administrative Service, Business Operational, Business Critical and Mission Critical.

In the Functional Fit view the color of the boxes indicates how well the Business support is. leanIX differentiates between Unreasonable, Insufficient, Appropriate and Perfect.

Technical Fit

In the Technical Fit view the color of the boxes indicates how appropriate an applications is from the technical perspective of view. leanIX differentiates between Inappropriate, Unreasonable, Adequate and Fully Appropriate.

Project Status

The Project Status view shows the status of the, with each application, associated projects. If at least one of those associated project has the status "red" the color of the application is also red. If none of the projects has the status "red", but at least one has the status "yellow" the application appears as yellow. If all projects have the status green, the application is also green. If there are no associated projects the application stays white.

Total Cost of IT Components

The Total Cost of IT Components view shows the IT component cost for the different applications. leanIX differentiates between 0 and >600k.

Data Classification

The Data Classification view shows the sensitivity level of the data that is used, manipulated or utilized by an application. leanIX differentiates between Public unclassified, Sensitive, Restricted and Confidential.

Technology Risk

The Technology Risk view is based on the life cycle status of the used IT Components. If one application uses a component that has already the status "end of life" the application is marked "red". If none of the used components has the status "end of life", but one is in "phase out" it, the application appears "yellow". If all used components are still active the application is green and if there are no entries for the used components it stays white.

You do have the same views in the Interface Map and the Application Matrix. These are the out of the box views. In many views you can also filter for your individual tag groups.
