Domain Model in Reporting
It is best practice to structure the application landscape from a functional point of view. Companies most often use the concept of domains to which the different applications are associated to.
The resulting application landscape is displayed in the following report:
leanIX supports hierarchical domain models of two levels. Applications can be associated to one or more domains and sub domains. You can create as many levels as you want. Please get in touch with email@example.com on this topic.
As like any other object in the leanIX Inventory, also the domain-structure is created using Fact Sheets. Each domain and each sub domain would then have a Fact Sheet. In the default configuration the relevant Fact Sheet is called "Business Capability". If you would like to change the name, please follow this link. For the following example, we keep the default name of the Fact Sheet.
Step 1: Create Domains and Sub Domains
One way in order to create the domains is to create a new Fact Sheet of the type Business Capability and then add the sub domains as children.
Step 2: Associate Applications to a Domain (Option A)
Open the Fact Sheet of the Business Capability - in our example "HR/Workforce Management". Each domain can be supported by more than one application, but at least one needs to be marked as "Leading". In the dialog you can further set how well the application is fitting into the domain from a functional point of view.
Step 2: Associate a Domain to an Application (Option B)
Open the Fact Sheet of the Application - in our example "newschimp". Each application can have more than one domain, but at least one needs to be marked as "Leading". In the dialog you can further set how well the application is fitting into the Domain from a functional point of view.
