Process Application Maps are diagrams with dashboards of essential value. You and your team can generate visualizations using an Excel sheet and built-in templates in Dragon1 and report with high-quality data for better data integration and data management.

Above you see an interactive example of a generated Process Application Map in the Viewer. The Dragon1 Viewer is an application that can be used on, but it can also be embedded on any website or be run locally on your laptop or server.

You can yourself also have such a generated diagram by doing the Dragon1 Demo Steps.

We have provided an Excel Sheet you can use to generate your Process Application Map with on Dragon1.

These kinds of interactive diagrams, like a process map and application map, support managing security and risk in your business architecture and IT architecture, such as the lack of standardization or high complexity.

The better you can identify how many processes or applications do not comply with standards or principles or certain standards and principles are not fully implemented, the better you can report and take action to improve cybersecurity and mitigate risks in the organization.

Specify or Design a Process Application Map using a Modeling Language

This diagram is specified in the Dragon1 Modeling language. In the embedded Viewer above, you see a visualization generated from a JSON structured data file containing the specification of the data, model, and visualization.

Compare Models

Next to generating maps, Dragon1 provides you with features to easily match your architecture diagrams and do a gap analysis.

The Match dialog supports you in comparing reference models with your models. This enables you to see how mature your company is in certain areas.

Filter Data

The filter dialog in the Viewer gives you control to filter any entity based on attribute values. With this, you can create, as a viewer, your view of the diagram.

Analyze Relationships

The Viewer provides you with a relationship dialog. This dialog supports you in showing and hiding relationships quickly between a certain class of entities. Specifically, you can toggle on and off the usage relationship of standards and/or principles by entities.

You can make use of Dragon1 in many ways. For instance, stand-alone, in a multi-vendor strategy, or as part of a toolchain.
You can import your data into the cloud-based repository and generate this diagram from there.
Or you can call the diagram type from within your environment, use it as a template, and feed it with a JSON data file.
