This blip is not on the current edition of the Radar. If it was on one of the last few editions, it is likely that it is still relevant. If the blip is older, it might no longer be relevant and our assessment might be different today. Unfortunately, we simply don't have the bandwidth to continuously review blips from previous editions of the Radar. Understand more

Assess ?

It's often very difficult to get a handle on our software estates as they grow ever more complex. Aplas is a new software mapping tool that can be used to create visualizations of our software landscapes in the form of maps. The tool works by ingesting metadata about your existing systems and then displaying a map over which various views can be projected. Ingestion is either a manual process or one that can be automated via APIs. We're pretty excited to see this product evolve and to see what's possible with the automated collection of metadata. It should be possible, for example, to expose architectural fitness functions such as run cost to create visualizations of how much is being spent on cloud infrastructure. Understanding which systems talk to other systems via which technology is another problem we often face and Aplas can visualize it for us.
