Save time, empower your teams and effectively upgrade your processes with access to this practical Distributed Computing Toolkit and guide. Address common challenges with best-practice templates, step-by-step work plans and maturity diagnostics for any Distributed Computing related project.

Download the Toolkit and in Three Steps you will be guided from idea to implementation results.

The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated Distributed Computing specific requirements:


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Distributed Computing Self Assessment book in PDF containing 49 requirements to perform a quickscan, get an overview and share with stakeholders.

Organized in a data driven improvement cycle RDMAICS (Recognize, Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control and Sustain), check the…

  • Example pre-filled Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard to get familiar with results generation

Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 994 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Distributed Computing improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. Has your organization prepared template messages, and made them available in the Command Center, for use in the event of an emergency, to reduce the time needed to distribute messages to staff?

  2. What structures and strategies were included (or absent) in the processes that made it possible for administrators and employees to implement the new educator evaluation system into practice?

  3. Are facility requirements defined in terms of real property requirements, process definition, arrangement, system layout, operations, maintenance, utility supply, distribution, and cost?

  4. How do large enterprises manage operational master data in a complex enterprise system landscapes today, how is distribution and replication between different ERP systems realized?

  5. Can conventional management keep up - or are new systems, special structures, distributed leadership, diffused authorities, self-organizing empowerment and new competencies needed?

  6. How do large enterprises manage operational master data in complex enterprise system landscapes today, how is distribution and replication between different ERP systems realized?

  7. How do you monitor, analyze and optimize the behavior of highly distributed, virtualized, cloud-based systems built of ever smaller components as containers and micro-services?

  8. What are the efficient request distribution, replica-content creation, and consistency enforcement strategies to achieve decentralized hybrid information system architecture?

  9. Does your organization have web-based geospatial applications to assist in meeting (internal/external) customer/public/stakeholder needs and distributing information?

  10. Are audit tools (discovery), software distribution, configuration management, or procurement systems in place to electronically track and store that information?


Complete the self assessment, on your own or with a team in a workshop setting. Use the workbook together with the self assessment requirements spreadsheet:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the Distributed Computing book in PDF containing 994 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

Your Distributed Computing self-assessment dashboard which gives you your dynamically prioritized projects-ready tool and shows your organization exactly what to do next:

  • The Self-Assessment Excel Dashboard; with the Distributed Computing Self-Assessment and Scorecard you will develop a clear picture of which Distributed Computing areas need attention, which requirements you should focus on and who will be responsible for them:

    • Shows your organization instant insight in areas for improvement: Auto generates reports, radar chart for maturity assessment, insights per process and participant and bespoke, ready to use, RACI Matrix
    • Gives you a professional Dashboard to guide and perform a thorough Distributed Computing Self-Assessment
    • Is secure: Ensures offline data protection of your Self-Assessment results
    • Dynamically prioritized projects-ready RACI Matrix shows your organization exactly what to do next:

 

STEP 3: Implement, Track, follow up and revise strategy

The outcomes of STEP 2, the self assessment, are the inputs for STEP 3; Start and manage Distributed Computing projects with the 62 implementation resources:

  • 62 step-by-step Distributed Computing Project Management Form Templates covering over 1500 Distributed Computing project requirements and success criteria:

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Project Scope Statement: Any new risks introduced or old risks impacted. Are there issues that could affect the existing requirements for the result, service, or product if the scope changes?

  2. Team Operating Agreement: Does your team need access to all documents and information at all times?

  3. Procurement Audit: Is there a general policy on approval of purchases?

  4. Scope Management Plan: Have the procedures for identifying budget variances been followed?

  5. Risk Register: Financial risk -can your organization afford to undertake the Distributed Computing project?

  6. Decision Log: What is the average size of your matters in an applicable measurement?

  7. Roles and Responsibilities: Are Distributed Computing project team roles and responsibilities identified and documented?

  8. Change Request: Will all change requests be unconditionally tracked through this process?

  9. Team Performance Assessment: To what degree can all members engage in open and interactive considerations?

  10. Procurement Management Plan: Have all involved Distributed Computing project stakeholders and work groups committed to the Distributed Computing project?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Distributed Computing project with this in-depth Distributed Computing Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Distributed Computing projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Distributed Computing and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

Defining, designing, creating, and implementing a process to solve a business challenge or meet a business objective is the most valuable role; In EVERY company, organization and department.

Unless you are talking a one-time, single-use project within a business, there should be a process. Whether that process is managed and implemented by humans, AI, or a combination of the two, it needs to be designed by someone with a complex enough perspective to ask the right questions. Someone capable of asking the right questions and step back and say, 'What are we really trying to accomplish here? And is there a different way to look at it?'

This Toolkit empowers people to do just that - whether their title is entrepreneur, manager, consultant, (Vice-)President, CxO etc... - they are the people who rule the future. They are the person who asks the right questions to make Distributed Computing investments work better.

This Distributed Computing All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
