  6. How do we accomplish our long range IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale goals?

  7. Is there a cost/benefit analysis of optimal solution(s)?

  8. What are we attempting to measure/monitor?

  9. How was the detailed process map generated, verified, and validated?

  10. What kind of crime could a potential new hire have committed that would not only not disqualify him/her from being hired by our organization, but would actually indicate that he/she might be a particularly good fit?


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 IBM WebSphere eXtreme Scale book in PDF containing 713 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

    Honestly - at the extremely low outlay - the capacity to accelerate your journey, increase productivity and be a more informed buyer (when combined with what actual business problems you are trying to solve) I would be extremely hard pressed to not undertake it.

    The Verdict: The Complete Self-Assessment package ticks a lot of checkboxes, especially for businesses testing the waters for decision making and performance enhancement and for companies that can not have a full-time professional on payroll to guide the initial implementation of their drive.
