For a full understanding of Decision Quadrants, please visit Decision quadrants.

 

Business Chart

The Business Chart widget includes a Business Value Decision Quadrant in your report.

The Business Value Decision Quadrant is aimed to identify those applications in your portfolio that require immediate action based on their criticality for the business and their exposure to any of the risks you are facing:

  • Global Risk (Risk index), 
  • Failure Probability (Production Risk), 
  • Maintenance (Development Risk) and 
  • Security Risk.

The Business Chart widget graphically displays a quadrant where apps (or groups of apps) are placed according to Business Value (Y-Axis).

The X-Axis can be customized to display the available types of Risks:

  • Risk Index (default value)
  • Failure Risk
  • Maintenance Risk
  • Security Risk

Please visit Decision quadrants for an explanation of different Risk indexes.

Points in the displayed graphic can be customized (by Group by selector) to represent:

  • Individual applications (setting Group By to “Not grouped”)
  • Groups of applications (grouped by any of the available portfolios in Group by selector)

In addition, every point has two main characteristics:

  • Diameter (proportional to size in Locs)
  • Color (the portfolio value the app belongs to. Please note that this option is only available when Color by selector has been set  to any to the available portfolios)

 

Production Chart

The Production Chart widget includes a Production Decision Quadrant in your report.

The Production Quadrant is aimed to identify those applications in your portfolio that could cause problems in production, and if they will be able to recover from these errors easily.

The applications with higher exposure to this kind of risk will be those in the upper-right area of the quadrant.

The Vertical (Y) axis represents Failure Probability. This indicates if applications are likely to provoke frequent errors in production. Applications with high Failure Probability could be a problem in the short term.

The Horizontal (X) axis represents the application’s Complexity, a normalized (between 0 and 100) metric based on applications’ cyclomatic complexity by function, duplication of code and maintainability index.

The Production Chart Widget graphically displays a quadrant where apps (or groups of apps) are placed according to the above-mentioned axis.

Refer to Decision quadrants for an explanation.

Points in the displayed graphic can be customized (by Group by selector) to represent:

  • Individual applications (setting Group By to “Not grouped”)
  • Groups of applications (grouped by any of the available portfolios in Group by selector)

In addition, every point has two main characteristics:

  • Diameter (proportional to size in Locs)
  • Color (the portfolio value the app belongs to. Please note that this option is only available when Color by selector has been set  to any to the available portfolios)

 

Development Chart

The Development Chart widget includes a Development Decision Quadrant in your report.

The Development quadrant is aimed to identify those applications in your portfolio exposed in the midterm, given the difficulty and associated cost to maintain them.

The applications with higher exposure to this kind of risk will be those in the upper-right area of the quadrant.

The vertical axis represents the Maintenance Risk: this indicates if applications’ maintenance costs are going to be higher than expected, or if it is going to be complex and costly to add new functionality to them. It is based on the evidence gathered from the code for the maintainability index.

The horizontal axis represents the application Complexity: a normalized (between 0 and 100) metric based on applications’ cyclomatic complexity by function, duplication of code and maintainability index.

The Development chart Widget graphically displays a quadrant where apps (or groups of apps) are placed according to the above-mentioned axis.

Please visit Decision quadrants for an explanation.

Points in the displayed graphic can be customized (by Group by selector) to represent:

  • Individual applications (setting Group By to “Not grouped”)
  • Groups of applications (grouped by any of the available portfolios in Group by selector)

Additionally, every point  has two main characteristics:

  • Diameter (proportional to size in Locs)
  • Color (the portfolio value the app belongs to. Please note that this option is only available when Color by selector has been set  to any to the available portfolios)

 

Security Chart

The Security Chart widget includes a Security Decision Quadrant in your report.

The Security quadrant is aimed to identify those applications in your portfolio that are exposed to potential internal or external attacks, that can compromise the integrity of your organization, and if these potential vulnerabilities can be easily corrected.

The applications with higher exposure to this kind of risk will be those in the upper-right area of the quadrant.

In the vertical axis, we represent the Security risk: This indicates how vulnerable an application is to internal or external attacks based on the number of vulnerabilities found in the application’s code as listed by CWE and OWASP.

In the horizontal axis, we represent application Complexity, a normalized (between 0 and 100) metric based on applications’ cyclomatic complexity by function, duplication of code and maintainability index.

The Security Chart Widget graphically displays a quadrant where apps (or groups of apps) are placed according to the above-mentioned axis.

Please, visit Decision quadrants for an explanation.

Points in the displayed graphic can be customized (by Group by selector) to represent:

  • Individual applications (setting Group By to “Not grouped”)
  • Groups of applications (grouped by any of the available portfolios in Group by selector)

Additionally, every point  has two main characteristics:

  • Diameter (proportional to size in Locs)
  • Color (the portfolio value the app belongs to. Please note that this option is only available when Color by selector has been set  to any to the available portfolios)
