Capability Maps with maturity built in
« on: October 21, 2019, 11:03:43 am »
Hi everyone, apologies am new to this forum if this has already been covered please direct me to the right place.

Am avid Archimate 3 user and am on a journey to develop an organisation wide capability heat map.  The heat piece is a maturity lense I like to use to show the organisation where opportunities lie and/or improvements could be made.  I could manually apply colors to the elements or I'd rather use an element attribute to do this more systematically.  Has anyone done this before and if so how.  Ideas/guidance would be appreciated.

Cheers ... Herminator

Hi Herminator,

You can make the properties you want to use to heatmap with as tagged values and then use Autoolour legends to colour the items appropriately.

We've used this technique to create Gartner APM Heatmaps inthe past.

HTH,

Heat maps can be also automatically generated based on template diagrams.
You can put any auto legend on the template diagram to color as you wish based any tagged value or property.
Elements on the heat maps are real elements that you can navigate, trace and zoom in.
They are automatically grouped, colored and resized (based on the template) so that a maximum of elements can be visible.
Generation can be
- on demand using the UI for a specific item
- scheduled as you wish for the entire model

The generated heat map diagrams also automatically include links to all diagrams inside each element so that the HTML version of the model gets completely navigable. Each HTML version of any diagram includes a little envelope that you can click on to send an email with a link to the diagram.
