Dashboards

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Summary” alignment=”left” main_heading_margin=”margin-top:100px;margin-bottom:10px;”][/ultimate_heading]

QualiWare 10.8 introduces a new Dashboard layout with multiple new features:

  • it is possible to set up multiple layouts for a diagram type, e.g. browsing view for the content user; and an analyzing and improving view for the content owner
  • the dashboards can be customized by the user
  • the content is responsive, showing associated data either for the diagram as a whole or for the selected object
  • a set of new tiles have been added to provide easy access to associated features, well-known as well as cool new features
[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Multiple Layouts” alignment=”left” main_heading_margin=”margin-top:100px;margin-bottom:10px;”][/ultimate_heading]

It is possible to create multiple Dashboard views for a template. Each dashboard can have a different focus e.g. “Browsing” or “Analyze and improve”.

All dashboards can be configured for different users and can be role-specific.

The user can select between the available layouts in the layout menu. The “Classic” view is the classic tabular view.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”End-user Customizable” alignment=”left” main_heading_margin=”margin-top:100px;margin-bottom:10px;”][/ultimate_heading]

The dashboards can be customized by the user.

All the dashboarditems can be re-sized and re-organized by drag and drop, and it is possible to hide tiles/items.

A user can save/remove the “Personal layout”, and at any time the standard layout can be reloaded.

Once a “Personal layout” is created it will be shown as default for the diagram, and the user can “Load Standard Layout” if needed.

[ultimate_heading main_heading=”Responsive” alignment=”left” main_heading_margin=”margin-top:100px;margin-bottom:10px;”][/ultimate_heading]

A sub-set of the tiles on the new dashboards is responsive. The content changes depending on the symbol selected.

As default, the content and properties of the diagram are shown in the dashboard tiles.

  1. When a symbol is selected, it gets highlighted by a read box and the following fields are updated:
    a) In the top left, the name of the object is shown along with the template type
    b) Responsibility
    c) Status
    d) Description
    e) Aligned with

In the “Aligned with” and “Collaboration” tiles, you can click on a specific icon for a specific type, e.g. Document(s) to focus on that particular subset.

The tiles can be expanded to get a full-page view of the tile, with a searchable list with additional information.

  • Process – Sensitive information, list the processes and their information usage, including the information sensitivity and privacy level
  • Event context, shows events related to the diagram, and the associated diagrams where the event is triggered from and what it triggers

The process diagrams, and the application architecture diagram includes a hierarchy view as part of the standard dashboards.

The hierarchy view is browsable, the user can unfold the hierarchy to explore the structure and navigate directly to a specific diagram.

This feature has been part of QualiWare for some time, using the hierarchyview template.

What is new, however, is that the hierarchy updates automatically as part of the governance flow when new diagrams are added via the “breakdown to” or “visualized by” relations.
