Computer application maturity illustration system with single point of failure analytics and remediation techniques
Patent No. 9,448,907
An application maturity illustration system is provided. Such a system may determine a maturity of a computer application, and display same. The determination may include determining an inventory score, an operational status, a management score reflective of a ratio of an actual management value to a desired management value, a risk score and a future score for the computer application. The future score may be reflective of a projected relative importance of the computer application. The processor may operate to display a GUI that includes inventory score, operational status score, management score, risk score and the future score in a horizontal row. The vertical column may be located either along the top most portion of the GUI with respect to a user viewing the GUI or at the bottom most portion of the GUI with respect to a user viewing the GUI. The GUI may also be configured to display a recovery exercise date region. The recovery exercise date region may be color-coded.
