Then find your goals...


STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track

Featuring 995 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Infrastructure Architecture improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 995 standard requirements:

  1. Which individuals, groups, or organizations are involved in establishing architecture, security, and service continuity requirements for cloud services, hosted applications, and data?

  2. What existing mobile technology applications can readily integrate with the identified learning architecture to maximize the potential for content delivery via mobile technologies?

  3. How much do you agree that enterprise open source is used by the most innovative companies/ is instrumental in your organizations ability to take advantage of cloud architectures?

  4. What will be the critical success factors and the main risks that enterprises will encounter while implementing an effective and enduring software platform architecture?

  5. What is more important for computing, storage, and network hardware when used in a cloud computing management infrastructure where elasticity is of great importance?

  6. Does the information architecture and information technology infrastructure support the goals of your organization and stay current with rapid technology changes?

  7. Have you considered a strategy to refresh your dated infrastructure while integrating expansive digital capabilities as data lakes and machine learning?

  8. How do you balance information driven demands with the need for a robust, dependable, flexible data infrastructure to meet daily business challenges?

  9. Where are the optimal break points in an applications architecture that will protect the necessary level of close process and systems integration?

  10. What comprehensive security framework can be used to design infrastructure architecture for an Enterprise SOA to assure its business process?

Results

With this Three Step process you will have all the tools you need for any Infrastructure Architecture project with this in-depth Infrastructure Architecture Toolkit.

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Infrastructure Architecture projects, initiatives, organizations, businesses and processes using accepted diagnostic standards and practices
  • Implement evidence-based best practice strategies aligned with overall goals
  • Integrate recent advances in Infrastructure Architecture and put process design strategies into practice according to best practice guidelines

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 Infrastructure Architecture investments work better.

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