What are the benefits of using Kiuwan Architecture

Kiuwan Architecture provides a corporate view of an enterprise’s software assets allowing this information to be accessed at different levels. From a single program or file up to the whole enterprise level.


This is possible thanks to Kiuwan Architecture’s ability to generate the complete map of your applications’ software components and relationships.


How does Kiuwan Architecture work

Kiuwan Architecture automatically builds a map of a software system (or “Application” in Kiuwan terms)

This is done by analyzing the source code and applying extraction rules in order to identify and insert into the model all components (artifacts) and relationships (dependencies).

That model is uploaded to Kiuwan cloud so you can use Kiuwan Architecture dashboards and pages to fully exploit all the above mentioned functionalities.

Once the model is uploaded, you can go to Kiuwan Architecture module, select the application and inspect the model by making use of the three available submodules:
