  • 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 997 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Hybrid IT improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:

  1. How can an application component be made accessible in one cloud or datacenter, when it is hosted in a different cloud or datacenter and the communication between environments is restricted?

  2. Will it be outsourced completely to the provider, maintained by the client, or will it be a hybrid with some internal customer employees working in conjunction with the providers dev team?

  3. Did the erp you were evaluating have the capability to intuitively allow end-users to build dashboards and make minor setup changes or did it require technical expertise to customize?

  4. Does it clearly specify who is responsible for which parts of the computing environment, so your organization knows the appropriate resource to contact when issues arise?

  5. Does the cloud provider employ a service excellence team that analyzes incident data across all client accounts to drive innovation and improve service quality?

  6. How can you, in your role as it manager, make a well-grounded decision on whether cloud solutions make sense for your organization and, if so, which solutions?

  7. How do you translate a raw signal or other information gathered from the nervous system into something that can be used to control a machine or interface?

  8. Do you believe an IT governance framework should be prescriptive on whether a centralised, federated or hybrid IT organizational model should be adopted?

  9. Does it make economic sense to replicate what you already have with some hybrid systems that have been re-tooled to manage the new digital services?

  10. When moving to the cloud, one thing that is often overlooked is the underlying infrastructure that connects users to cloud-based applications. Why?
