Landscaping Service

What is a Landscape?

A Landscape is a high-level overview of a coherent set of entities, grouped together based on function or purpose, showing what the entities are made of and capable of. Common landscapes for organizations are the application landscape and the process landscape.

Creating the Landscape for you in close Collaboration

We have created a service for you, that if you want, we can create a Landscape for you, and you and your team members can give feedback anytime, anywhere via the Dragon1 Content Viewer on your iPad and Smartphone.

The Dragon1 Platform and its specialized tools enable close collaborations between us, like the Architecture Repository, Visual Designer and Content Viewer.

How does it work?

Suppose you want to create a process-application landscape:

  • We will first create a project or campaign on Dragon1 together with a deadline and plan the activities or schedule the tasks to execute.
  • You will then collect the necessary and available data, for instance in an Excel sheet.
  • Next we will upload the data automatically and enrich the data manually.
  • Then we will build a visual Landscape using the data and you will comment the Landscape visualization.
  • We will iterate this cycle four or five times in two of three weeks.

We will be using all the important features in the Dragon1 web application to perform the task:

  • In the Architecture Repository we will upload and import the data. And we will show you how to do it yourself. At any time you can take over this work if you like or want.

  • In the Visual Designer we will build a model using the data, build a view and visualization on top of the model. And as with the Architecture Repository we will show you how we do that. Also the Dragon1 Help System explain thoroughly how you can make use of Dragon1. As we provide you with literally everything you need to eventually be able to do it yourself.

  • In the Content Viewer you will watch the published intermediate versions of the Landscape and be able to comment it. Also there are many features to handle the Landscape: filter data, select data, view the changes made and message directly to people part of the workflow for the product.

Often a Landscape is part of a bigger plan. If you prefer you can create in time all the deliverables and a complete presentation on the Dragon1 platform, working with a single source of truth, thus increasing the quality of data you use.
