Analyzing a business driver map or correlation map
This topic provides information about analyzing a business driver map or correlation map.
To analyze a business driver map or correlation map
- Click Analyze.
A preview of the results can be accessed from the tabs on the left of the map, such as "Correlations", "Slope", and so on.
- To permanently store the analysis results, click Save.
On the top right corner of the map you can find information such as:
- The date and time of the last refresh of the map.
- How the associations were created.
- The status of the estimations.
The following table provides additional information about the displayed results.
If the text "N/A" appears in a cell, it means that the analysis was not able to produce that result. This is usually due to a lack of samples needed to perform the analysis. In this case, change the time filter or time resolution of the analysis and try again.
Correlation coefficients are the first results calculated by the analysis function according to the defined associations and using the metrics measured for the specified time range. The correlations are compared with some general thresholds:
This value, only available for business driver maps, represents the size of the sample on which the correlations and the other parameters were calculated.
In the Charts tab of the analysis page, you can view the charts associated with the map.
Example of a chart obtained from the analysis of a business driver map
Note for advanced users
In a multivariate case, the solution of the business driver map analysis is a service demand surface, not well represented by a X-Y 2D chart. The chart of a multivariate case is the projection of the N-dimensional U/W cloud on a 2-D plan U/W1. As a consequence, the linear regression of the multivariate case in the chart does not fit visually with the service demand line for this dimension; however, the mathematical estimation still remains correct.
