Reports Creation

 

...

A Report is composed of widgets. A widget is a graphical element that displays information.

...

To create a Report,

...

select the widgets

...

 

...

from Kiuwan Widgets Library. Every widget has configuration options that you will set to adapt the widget to your desired functionality.

...

  

The selection and configuration of the widgets will

...

define the content of your report, i.

...

e. what information will be included and how will be displayed in the generated report.

Once the report is created,

...

it is generally available to the rest of the users.

...

You can modify the report at any time

For a fully understanding on Decision Quadrants, please visit https://www.kiuwan.com/docs/display/K5/Decision+quadrants.

 

Business Chart

Business Chart widget allows to include 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 risks you are facing: Global Risk (Risk index), Failure Probability (Production Risk), Maintenance (Development Risk) and Security Risk.

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

Image Removed

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

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

Please, visit https://www.kiuwan.com/docs/display/K5/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)

Additionally, every point  has two main characteristics:

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

 

Production Chart

Production Chart widget allows to include 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.

 

Image Removed

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.

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

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

Please, visit https://www.kiuwan.com/docs/display/K5/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, this option is only available when Color by selector has been set  to any to the available portfolios)

 

Development Chart

Development Chart widget allows to include 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.

 

Image Removed

In the vertical axis we represent 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.

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.

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

Please, visit https://www.kiuwan.com/docs/display/K5/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, this option is only available when Color by selector has been set  to any to the available portfolios)

 

Security Chart

Security Chart widget allows to include 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 you 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.

Image Removed

In the vertical axis we represent the Security risk: This indicated 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.

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

Please, visit https://www.kiuwan.com/docs/display/K5/Decision+quadrants for an explanation.

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

Additionally, every point  has two main characteristics:

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