Innovative Enterprise Application Analytics

CIOs and IT departments have never been under greater pressure to do more with less. You must constantly perform a balancing act—satisfying the evolving and innovative demands of the business while getting the most out of your company’s existing Enterprise applications. You need to optimize and innovate operations residing in these applications to deliver competitive advantage. Using sophisticated algorithms and queries, KR helps IT departments assess, estimate complexity, plan, trace how data is processed, plan transformations, and smooth migration of Enterprise Applications that extend or modernize the life of their existing infrastructures.

Assess

Gain immediate understanding of your applications and portfolio. KR provides the most complete inventory and visualization of an entire application in a single model. As systems and business operations migrate and change, the ability to analyze the application or portfolio of applications to understand and plan for the change is critical. KR will allow you to understand the:

  • Accumulated Technical Debt—Complexity and implementation errors;
  • Dependencies—Degree to which application is tethered to the IT infrastructure and impact on operational performance needs for data access and transactions;
  • Level of Effort for Change—Scoping and planning; and
  • Prioritizing Revealed Risks—Within applications, and impact on the portfolio of applications for each application changing.

Predict

Know the quality and complexity requirements for efficient business logic. KR’s application analysis gives you an understanding of how much effort is needed to ensure efficient implementation of business logic, and helps you plan to optimize implementation for cost effective sustainment.

Trace

The most important answers to your complex business challenges may be hiding in your data. KR helps you trace how your data is processed, thus creating actionable information for your business intelligence, risk, audit, and regulatory needs. KR is a crucial tool for both business intelligence (revenue businesses) and risk and security needs. Download the Technology Case Study to learn more. (PDF, 137kb)

Transform

Predict your future. Understanding the current state of an application is critical to assessing options and risks of change. KR’s tools make it easy to enable transformation from one implementation to another. Examples of transformations include:

  • Extraction of currently implemented business logic to assess what stays and goes. Relevant terms and rules can be moved to new environment without significant effort and documented to ensure no loss of knowledge.
  • Extraction of—and transformation of—legacy data structures to modern ones.
  • Service identification and web service enablement of services for application transformation into a cloud or web service environment.

Migrate

Keep up with the speed of business change. Whether triggered by functional, regulatory, or security reasons, today’s applications require a faster understanding, faster business knowledge extraction, and a faster post migration assessment. KR can be used in line in the Development environment allowing you to track the planned changes as early in the SDLC as possible to ensure change is accurate and complete; assess impact of change on other areas of the application; address proper test coverage; and run queries against compliance measures (Security, Regulatory, Functional) to verify that change does not impact the measures. KR is ideal for an agile environment providing on-demand understanding of development changes and the impact of the changes. This enables the development, test, security, and quality team members into the impact review cycle.
