Elevator Pitch ConfluentMinds Solutions Socializing Knowledge Executive Summary
Document Management System Knowledge stored as word, ppt or pdf Documents under various Directory Structure. Add new Documents under some other directory Not sure if any one document is latest Latest document doesnt contain all information The Problem Codes & Design docs not in sync Documents are inherently bulky Documents sorted alphabetically, confused which to start & which is next
IT Application Knowledge Domain Knowledge ConfluentMinds Solution Framework
Auto-generate Knowledge Auto-create knowledge for IT Applications
Auto-create DFD from source code Maintain Knowledge Standard off the shelf tools like Code visual to Flow creates Data flow Diagram corresponding to start & end line of any routine, in many languages.
Upload Data flow Diagram corresponding to all routines & complete the Logic Tree Maintain Knowledge
Explore IT Knowledge Link Logic execution Tree with corresponding User Interface event Group User Interfaces under a Process cycle aka Functional Layer Group Functional Layers under an IT System
Auto-create knowledge of Business Processes Auto-generate Knowledge
Maintain Knowledge Upload suitable Process diagrams at each node along with brief description Drill down or up & navigate Add / View Process Documents
Navigation Drilldown tree structure with guided Navigation Allows to focus on a subset of knowledge only, in detail You cant do this in Windows explorer kind of environment. All the directories appear there always & you need to drill up or down one at a time. Here you can choose view all or a sub-set with one click
Definitive search feature leading to corresponding DFD directly Search Search result points to the corresponding DFD directly
Secured Data access based on role & responsibility Roles Create roles according to organization positions Then create responsibilities Responsi bilities Give Knowledge access to Responsibilities Assign responsibilities to role Users Assign roles to users Security Assign Role to User Assign a set of IT Systems to a Responsibility
Integrated Approval Workflow for Knowledge units created by employees Knowledge Approval Once the logic tree is auto generated & all DFDs are uploaded, send to the System owner for approval
Bugs & Enhancements Once a bug is found on any functionality, Create & upload Bug related SDLC documents Change all the affected DFDs which got modified to fix this Bug. The Logic tree always remains up to date..

Knowledge creation cost Consider an oracle pl/sql package with 500 lines of code having 2 main routines calling 16 routines internally. Upload the pl/sql file. 2 Logic trees are created, having total 16 nodes corresponding to the internally called routines. 1 minute Create 16 Dataflow diagrams corresponding to above 16 nodes. 15 minute per DFD manually, using Visio, Excel or Power point 7 minute per DFD using standard plug-ins viz: visustin, visual code flow generator etc and fine tuning Average 10 minute 160 minutes total Review, Finalize, Approve & Store 20 minute Time Required Action Items
Value Proposition Not sure if one document is latest Latest document doesnt contain all information Codes & Design docs not in sync Documents sorted alphabetically, confused which to start & which is next Knowledge units maintained as diagrams Guided navigation with Drilldown tree structure Single Point of Truth (SPOT) Single page Knowledge view Documents are inherently bulky Flow diagrams are created from code and always up to date Document Management System
Deployment & Cost structure On-premise for Big Enterprises Installation cost one time Maintenance cost every year Knowledge creation cost proportionate with source code Company firewall Social Media for Knowledge Workers FREE or Service charge monthly Software as a Service(SAAS) For SMB Enterprises No Installation cost No Maintenance cost Service charge per month per user Knowledge creation cost proportionate with source code Cloud service providers firewall
Content Delivery Platform Auto-generated Knowledge User generated content (UGC) Approve & store knowledge Secure access Guided navigation with Drilldown tree structure Knowledge units as diagrams Single page Knowledge view Single Point of Truth (SPOT) Collaborate knowledge with peers ConfluentMinds Summary Permanent Knowledge Asset Enables quick comprehension Faster knowledge transition Self learning & collaboration system
