The Toolkit contains the following practical and powerful enablers with new and updated On-Premises Virtual Machines specific requirements:

STEP 1: Get your bearings

Start with...

  • The latest quick edition of the On-Premises Virtual Machines 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 992 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which On-Premises Virtual Machines improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 992 standard requirements:

  1. What level of support exists for virtual machine storage and activation within other cloud infrastructures (especially hyper-scale) that have compelling service usage pricing advantages?

  2. How do you support the needs of legacy, business critical applications, and provide flexible infrastructure to support new virtual machine-based applications or a migration to SaaS?

  3. Does the virtual machine management infrastructure include a tamper audit or software integrity function to detect changes to the build/configuration of the virtual machine?

  4. Which action should an administrator take to prevent users from instantly being disconnected when using Remote Desktop Protocol to connect to a virtual machine?

  5. Does the management console of the virtual machine manager have tight access controls, locked down to specific users and specific partitions or machines?

  6. Which result, when verified by the administrator, show is that the change has been made and ensures that the virtual machines can successfully register?

  7. Is a single backup and recovery solution ideal for all physical and virtual servers, or should companies buy a separate product for virtual machines?

  8. How does someone connect to a powered on virtual instance of a protected server or virtual machine during a disaster recovery test or actual event?

  9. Is the virtual machine-to-admin ratio in your organization increasing to the hundreds or thousands, making monitoring service levels challenging?

  10. Do you leverage encryption to protect data and virtual machine images during transport across and between networks and hypervisor instances?

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:

  • The workbook is the latest in-depth complete edition of the On-Premises Virtual Machines book in PDF containing 992 requirements, which criteria correspond to the criteria in...

  • Diagnose On-Premises Virtual Machines 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 On-Premises Virtual Machines 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 On-Premises Virtual Machines investments work better.

This On-Premises Virtual Machines All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
