    Featuring 939 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of Process Design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Apache Kafka improvements can be made.

    Examples; 10 of the 939 standard requirements:

    1. Does your solution make it easy to integrate existing Enterprise Applications and data into new experiences and manage the deployment of content and application functionality in a unified way?

    2. How would your organization value a fully integrated system for Identity Management, usage, and response-time monitoring across its public SaaS applications across its extended enterprise?

    3. Is your organization engaged in Data Visualization, that is, using internally available and externally aggregated information to visually represent and assess its market performance?

    4. What are the arguments in favour of app aggregation – is it realistic to expect lower marketing costs and churn, or increased lifetime subscriber value with the right partner?

    5. Should d2c services allow themselves to be aggregated online – will short-term growth be at the expense of consumer data, revenue shares and long-term profit potential?

    6. Is the enterprise private PaaS able to integrate with all existing solutions equally or is it better integrated with one vendor by design rather than another vendor?

    7. Which WebSphere capability enables dynamic workload management through monitoring of application health, workload traffic, and adjustments to workload distribution?

    8. Does your organization use alternative application delivery methods, as VDI or application streaming, to field mission-critical applications to internal clients?

    9. Do the providers testing solutions integrate with and support the key Enterprise Applications and technology platforms most critical to your business outcomes?

    10. How robust is your process of identifying risks to the strategy that is, recognizing and responding to threats that stand in the way of strategy execution?

    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 Apache Kafka investments work better.

    This Apache Kafka All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
