The report presents metrics as an approach for supporting the management of an application landscape by quantifying specific structural aspects. It derives basic guidelines for the construction of such metrics from a comparison of current application landscape metrics to metrics in software engineering and business administration. Thereby, it puts a special emphasis on integrating the metrics into methodologies for addressing concerns relevant to application landscape management. The report exemplifies these guidelines by describing application landscape metrics for testability aspects, together with a viewpoint for visualizing and a methodology for using the metrics.
