Applications by DBMS

This report allows you to view applications broken out by database management systems. For example, build a bar chart showing the count of applications by Database Management System (DBMS) within your application portfolio. You can build this report using the design settings in the table below. Alternatively, you can download this report definition and upload it to your PPM Pro instance. Please note that if you use the report definition file to create this report in your instance, the user-defined field used in this example recipe will not be in your instance and you will need to select a Left Axis field in the resulting report.
