Announcing new Release of IBM Application Discovery & Delivery Intelligence 5.0.5
Application Discovery & Delivery Intelligence 5.0.5 accelerates digital transformation by providing a richer web interface and expands deployment options by adding Application Discovery repository support for Db2 for z/OS. The enhanced web interface significantly improves the analytical capabilities of the static analysis data gathered from Application Discovery and provides an enterprise view of the application portfolio. Users now have an ability to customize and trend additional data from Application Discovery and get a cross project analysis.
Single installation process of ADDI 5.0.5 components
Installation of the web client (Application Delivery Intelligence) is now integrated with the overall installation process of IBM Application Discovery and Delivery Intelligence (ADDI) components, and installations of subsequent releases can be done as upgrades to the current installation. Basic configuration tasks of ADI can be performed using IBM Application Discovery Configuration Server Admin interface.

Improved user experience for Static analysis improvements
With the improved user experience for static analysis, you can easily get into the detailed analysis reports without going through multiple pages. All the key static analysis metrics and structure data from Application Discovery data providers can now be visualized in Application Delivery Intelligence. The reports from Application Discovery data are highly customizable to suit specific needs of various project requirements or can be used out of the box with pre-selected defaults.

New Notification rules for metric violation
To better monitor the changes of source code in your system, you can now set up rules so that you get notified when the metric values violate the rules you defined. For example, you can get notified when one of the static metrics from Application Discovery data provider is over the unacceptable threshold. You can subscribe or unsubscribe to the notifications of the rules as you prefer.
