A software index is a store for software asset metadata. It's specialized and workflow-agnostic, and an excellent source-of-truth.
Creating an index takes a few clicks (you might create many for environment management).
All indexes contains applications, integrations, components, and collections. A simple, flexible data model that is broadly consumable and easy to keep up-to-date.
There are range of options to populate your index, then to keep it up-to-date as your software changes.
We recommend you start with whatever you have at hand. Once your map is created it will help drive improvement over time.
A software index can be customized to suit the requirements of your business.
New fields can be added globally or against a specific asset type. Field types include strings, numbers, options, ratings, images, links, and more. Any field can be required, featured, or a list.
This allows you to manage the quality of data appended by different areas of IT.
There's little value in an index that isn't shared within your organization. Metasearch and Indexviz can be directly shared from an index.
It's also possible to share Aplas index metadata with other systems via our API.
