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 Network Troubleshooting improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 994 standard requirements:

  1. Is your current business model based on strong network relationships or on an exploratory and proactive approach to reach beyond your organizations current horizon to explore new emergent issues?

  2. Can the solution provide network infrastructure monitoring, network connectivity, network paths, and configuration mapping for insight into connectivity to help you troubleshoot issues?

  3. How to achieve that target when the companies deploying the networks are grappling with personnel issues, and manufacturers Ð notably optical cable Ð are grappling with supply issues?

  4. Are there networks as senior executive organizations, functional teams, or cross-cutting teams that can ensure that changes are thoroughly implemented and sustained over time?

  5. What are the implications of your approach on server performance, especially when a routing change causes many new range requests to reach a server simultaneously?

  6. What new trends, technologies, and issues are arising in network-based firewalls, anti-virus/anti-spam, and network-based distributed denial of service safeguards?

  7. How does your internal and external networks help you to prioritize the already stated issues and pinpoint the optimal scope of your involvement most effectively?

  8. What better way to engage with the pressing issues experienced in tech, than to hear from the already stated ambitious entrepreneurs driving the sector forward?

  9. Is there evidence that the problem is due to the use of a wrong or defective accessory or to a problem within a data network connected to the devices output?

  10. Is the product capable of logging and recording all changes which occur on the asset including applications, databases, network or system operating systems?
