- Which cloud services classification poses the greatest number of restrictions when the customer aims for flexibility for tailoring the complete platform including hardware and software?
- Is management willing to plan immediately before the iteration instead of earlier to allow the customers feedback to be incorporated into the planning?
- What is the development approach designed to achieve easier and more effective integration of code modules within and between enterprises?
- Which phase of the cloud service lifecycle involves ongoing management activities to maintain cloud infrastructure and deployed services?
- How do you ensure your software goes through a consistent and repeatable testing and deployment process before getting to production?
- What percentages of the delivered features are being used by the customers and are achieving the expected business results?
- Is the customer encouraged to continually give feedback/criticism and rethink requirements during the development process?
- What is one technology used in client side browser code that queries back end systems for data from the cloud services?
- Is management willing to commit to the process of continuously planning instead of developing a one-time plan upfront?

- Integrate recent advances in Infrastructure as a Code 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 as a Code investments work better.
This Infrastructure as a Code All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
