Then find your goals...


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

Featuring 990 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Production Environments improvements can be made.

Examples; 10 of the 990 standard requirements:

  1. Is it acceptable to have an expectation that you will be able to shut down and reboot into a fully functioning, newly migrated environment without a strong plan for migration and testing?

  2. Should companies proactively respond to the challenges of climate change by adopting cleaner production, methods, promoting efficient use of energy and environment friendly technologies?

  3. Will vendors have root or administrator access to the identity management servers in the non production and production environments for base installation and configuration?

  4. Does your organization require multiple operating environments as development, test, and production or will a single production environment suffice?

  5. How does your organization determine what changes it should test in a test environment and what changes it should test in a production environment?

  6. Are development, test, and production environments managed in order to ensure that software, hardware and configuration integrity is maintained?

  7. Does the test plan address proper use of the dedicated test environments to protect the integrity of existing production environments and data?

  8. Does the vendor have separate development, test and production environments; and access for programming staff to production is restricted?

  9. How can it easily enforce enterprise policies, ensure costs are kept under control, and enable chargeback billing in a cloud environment?

  10. What happens when new servers come online and require protection or when new communication flows are required for existing workloads?

Results

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

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:

  • Diagnose Production Environments 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 Production Environments 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 Production Environments investments work better.

This Production Environments All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
