What are Layers in FusionGraph?

Learn about Layers and how they can be used to organize your Knowledge Graph

Create individual Layers of Graph Data.

Each Layer describes a different part of your Knowledge Graph. Layers keep different types of information separate across your OrgGraph, FactGraph and Plan Graph.

FusionGraph comes with best practice Layer templates, or you can define Layers to cater for your own unique needs.

Layer Colours & Icons - create data that stands out

Each Layer can be described with a different colour to ensure that complex visualisations are clear. Plus, you can select an Icon from hundreds of options to describe Items on each Layer.

Define Layer Relationships - connect anything to anything

You can decide how Layers relate to each other, creating rules to make your Knowledge Graph as simple or sophisticated as you need.

Relate Applications to Business Processes, Data to Applications, People to Projects, Inefficiencies to Processes, Roadmaps to Inefficiencies.

This means that Items on each Layer can link to Items on other Layers to describe interdependencies, impacts, ownership or alignment.

Layer Properties - describe different things differently

Add specific Properties to a Layer to describe Items in their own unique way. Properties can include text descriptions, numeric values and state checkboxes. 

Layer Classifications - group things with Visual Categories

Each Layer can have multiple Classifications to group Items that belong to the Layer. Which Applications are Cloud vs. On-Premise?

Which Business Processes are Critical vs. Non-Critical? Which Roadmap Items are Possible, Probable or Approved?

Classifications also have Icons and colours so that Items belonging to each classification can be visually clustered together, dragged or filtered.
