After you’ve loaded the capabilities, create the business processes and application services. These are aimed to provide you with a starting point and intended to be used as placeholder instances. You can add to these at a later date when you have access to more accurate data.

Mapping the Data Using the Launchpad Exporter View – Bulk Load

The Set-Up Manager captures an Industry based capability model and placeholders for Processes and Services. You can now add your organisation’s Applications and Organisation structure and map your Applications to the Application Services created and to the Business Processes they are used on, populating views such as the Business Capability Dashboard and the Application Catalogue. The Launchpad Exporter is a good way to add this data and perform the mapping in Bulk. Access via the View Library/Support
