Free Essential Launchpad

Get your Essential architecture up and running quickly

We have created the Essential Launchpad to help organisations quick start their data capture, and populate some of the key foundational views in Essential.

The focus is on allowing you to gain an understanding of the business landscape, how it is supported by your applications and the deployments of your applications. This data is the foundation for many of the other views in Essential and it provides a great launchpad for using Essential.
