AppScore moves applications through a workflow, this article explains how to complete the first two stages, signposting and scoring
There are three outputs to the signposting and scoring within AppScore, they are:
- The recommended 7R - Known as signposting within AppScore.
- Risk and Complexity scores of the application in its current state.
- Risk, Benefit and Complexity scores of the 7R option.
The Signposting and Scoring question sections described here are required to get an Rs recommendation and associated scores. The Current State Assessment and Deep Dive sections are optional questionnaires under which you can record additional information about the application.
Data can be added using the signposting and scoring screens or uploaded using the import feature.
Sign Posting is the first stage, which provides the 7R recommendation.
Once you have configured your data point file and created your required users you then you can start to populate the answers to the questions that will give you your 7Rs recommendations and Risk, Benefit and Complexity scores.
Within the application's screen, click on signposting on the left-hand menu and answer the questions. Once the questions are answered the system will generate a 7R recommendation.
The questions can be answered by anyone who has been given the correct role in the system and can include a partner or end client colleagues.
The strategy is set at the system level but can be overridden at each application if needed. It is best to leave this in line with the system setting unless there are specific reasons why it needs to be altered.
The scoring data points will allow the system to score the application in its current state and for each available 7R option. AppScore supports two methods of scoring, Simplified Scoring and Advanced Scoring.
Initial discovery and assessment can be achieved even quicker using AppScore's Simplified Scoring feature. With Simplified Scoring, a score is produced based on the answers provided in AppScore's SignPosting stage along with the server and database technologies used by the application.
Once all the SignPosting questions are answered the system will generate a score.
To produce deeper, more insightful scores, Advanced Scoring can be used. With Advanced Scoring activated, a score is produced based on a wider set of questions from AppScore's SignPosting and Advanced Scoring stages along with the server and database technologies used by the application.
Once all the SignPosting and Advanced Scoring questions are answered the system will generate a score.
Under Settings, Advanced Scoring, you can view the Advanced scores in use and there's a toggle to turn Advanced Scoring on and off. Changing this setting will cause a rescore of all applications.
