In this post I'll cover the 4 main processes and time reports in AppTracker. These reports in particular are essential information for on time software migrations.
A very powerful report showing a bar chart of the total number of applications in the various different processes over a given period in the past. E.g. it’s possible to take a Blueprint of applications and check their process totals for the last six weeks or the last six months. This can show measurable process or lack of and the need for intervention.
This report builds on the process milestones report and can show you the rate of applications entering the different processes over a given period. For example this can show the rate of applications going from packaging to UAT and if it has remained constant. This is very good at measurable if SLA's are getting meet by the various teams.
Time in Current Process
If you are looking for bottle necks in your workflow this report can help, it will show the total time each applications has been in its current Process / Sub Process. This can then be further filtered and sorted to highlight the applications that have been stuck for days or weeks and need to be focused on.
Total Time in Processes
If you are trying to identify which processes are taking the longest, get the average packaging time or find the top 10 longest applications to package then this report will give you the building blocks. It will show the total time an app has spent in each process over its lifecycle.
