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


STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the Azure HDInsight 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 700 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Azure HDInsight improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 700 standard requirements:

  1. Will the big data cloud environment support scale-out, shared-nothing massively parallel processing, storage optimization, dynamic query optimization, and mixed workload management better than alternative deployment models (e.g., on-premises appliances, software on commodity hardware)?

  2. Are there any further important challenges with respect to data-driven innovation in your organization where measures at national or state level should be put in place (please note: this does not only mean regulatory measures)?

  3. Do you see specific areas that would benefit from increased interoperability (such as when the same work in areas like data transformation or data integration needs to be done over and over again or is very effort-intensive)?

  4. 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?

  5. In what manner and under which conditions is it feasible to apply effective control measures to Big Data implementations and gain increased certainty over the validity of data analytics outcomes?

  6. While a move from Oracles MySQL may be necessary because of its inability to handle key big data use cases, why should that move involve a switch to Apache Cassandra and DataStax Enterprise?

  7. How many predictive analytics functions are measured explicitly on improvement in predictive accuracy, with the CEO keeping an eye on this (retention, acquisition, risk, pricing models) ?

  8. From all data collected by your organization, what is approximately the share of external data (collected from external sources), compared to internal data (produced by your operations)?

  9. From all data collected by your organisation, what is approximately the share of external data (collected from external sources), compared to internal data (produced by your operations)?

  10. Will the big data cloud environment better support on-demand provisioning, scaling, optimization, and execution of diverse data and analytic resources than alternative deployment models?

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

Examples; 10 of the check box criteria:

  1. Activity Cost Estimates: Which contract type places the most risk on the seller?

  2. Monitoring and Controlling Process Group: Just how important is your work to the overall success of the Azure HDInsight project?

  3. Activity Duration Estimates: After how many days will the lease cost be the same as the purchase cost for the equipment?

  4. Activity Duration Estimates: Are time, scope, cost, and quality monitored throughout the Azure HDInsight project?

  5. WBS Dictionary: Intermediate schedules, as required, which provide a logical sequence from the master schedule to the control account level?

  6. Scope Management Plan: Can the Azure HDInsight project team do several activities in parallel?

  7. Project Performance Report: To what degree do the relationships of the informal organization motivate task relevant behavior and facilitate task completion?

  8. Project Schedule: Azure HDInsight project work estimates Who is managing the work estimate quality of work tasks in the Azure HDInsight project schedule?

  9. Team Operating Agreement: Do you leverage technology engagement tools group chat, polls, screen sharing, etc.?

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 Azure HDInsight investments work better.

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