Engaging Data Explains:
High Level Design Documentation –
Have you ever needed to create high-level documents of your data automation that explains a project/sprint within your WhereScape Red repository? Maybe so it looks a little like the above?
We recently worked with a client who wanted to represent the amount of change undertaken within a single project. They required something simple yet demonstrated the amount of change within each layer of the data automation.
Instead of creating something new, we re-used the WhereScape RED Overview design, WhereScape used to illustrate the design of the architecture.
Engaging Data consultants worked with the client to create a solid naming convention and development standards. With this foundation and the metadata repository, we developed a script that produced an HTML document with details the client was looking for.
The idea continued to develop and now has options to include the following details:
- Number of Jobs, Procedures and Host Scripts that support each layer.
- Data Volume per object and summarised per layer
- Processing time for each layer, with avg completion time & avg time to run
WhereScape RED and 3D speeds up development & documentation of the technical design. This solution utilises the metadata to create support or narrative documents for other business areas.
Build re-usable scripts, dashboards or reports for non-technical business teams & provide clarity around the technical function of your automation.
