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 Software-Defined Networking improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 997 standard requirements:
- Is the staffing plan adequate and does it demonstrates an understanding of the labor needed to accomplish your organizations objectives and related activities?
- What do you consider to be the key challenges and tradeoffs for the implementation of Managed Security Services in an environment similar to your organization?
- How can regulation, policy and resistance address the rapid and multi-scaled diffusion of automated software-sorting techniques across contemporary societies?
- What does the existing networking team continue to support versus the team responsible for the virtualized software defined data center infrastructure?
- How can service providers address the evolutionary requirements for optimal, end-to-end operations supporting cloud, NFV-based and SDN-based services?
- What are the next steps to turn SDN from research and development stage into something more practical that will benefit carrier services directly?
- Can statistical benchmarking be performed on the stored telemetry data by real-time monitoring to identify the trend and take appropriate action?
- Can security tools verify beyond doubt that logical separation or isolation guarantees no interactions between the different virtual networks?
- How willing are you to make significant architectural changes to your production networks in order to achieve the promised benefits of SDN?
- Have you seen any changes in the behavior or performance of your organizations network due to the growing use of Big Data technologies?

In using the Toolkit you will be better able to:
- Diagnose Software-Defined Networking 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 Software-Defined Networking 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 Software-Defined Networking investments work better.
This Software-Defined Networking All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person.
