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

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the AppDynamics 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 976 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which AppDynamics improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 976 standard requirements:

  1. How likely is it that a particular approach will reduce the cost of deploying and managing Big Data analytics and maximize the productivity and efficiency of IT Operations over the deployments expected useful life?

  2. Can you obtain advice and technical support about the device and your network, management of large numbers of devices, and professional development on basic operations and pedagogical applications?

  3. Can an application provide centralized network management to configure and manage multi-platform, Software defined, and traditional networking environment for academia and small business networks?

  4. Are policies and procedures established for management authorization for development or acquisition of new applications, systems, databases, infrastructure, services, operations, and facilities?

  5. Next year, approximately what percentage of your IT operating and capital budget will go to information management (analytics, database, document management) and storage management operations?

  6. What should IT Operations analytics look like in a dynamic world, where the real-world changes far faster than the model can keep up, and operations teams are deluged with ever more events?

  7. How does the project management capability of a client organization impact the ability of that client organization to effectively offshore outsource application development projects?

  8. Will it support continued, measurable, and verifiable compliance with all the relevant government, industry, and organization mandates relevant to any and all aspects of operations?

  9. Are you moving toward a strategic IT approach, and therefore need a solution that allows you to be proactive, avoid day-to-day firefighting and support broader business objectives?

  10. How should activities be distributed amongst the software tasks so that the processor load is balanced (and thereby get the best cost/performance out of the processor selection)?

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:

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 AppDynamics investments work better.

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