STEP 2: Set concrete goals, tasks, dates and numbers you can track
Featuring 937 new and updated case-based questions, organized into seven core areas of process design, this Self-Assessment will help you identify areas in which Toolchain improvements can be made.
Examples; 10 of the 937 standard requirements:
- Continuous Integration, Continuous Deployment, Continuous Release, and Continuous Delivery are key DevOps enablers. Automated testing involves automated, CI-driven execution of whatever set of tests the team has accumulated. However, if one of these tests fails, what does that really mean: does it indicate a critical business risk, or just a violation of some naming standard that nobody is really committed to following anyway?
- You can start to create different test scenarios by bringing together all of the different types of testing that you require, and keeping a tight association with the application components to which these tests belong. This mapping is critical to understand which tests touch which code and more importantly understanding: when the code changes, which tests need to be re-run?
- How do you do the type of complex, end-to-end, multichannel testing required for todays modern, distributed, microservice rich applications?
- The individual factors that make up continuous testing. How do you actually accomplish it, from beginning to end?
- How to utilize open source applications to implement DevOps toolchain?
- DevOps has undoubtedly arrived – but is it on your CIO agenda yet?
- How have changes impacted other aspects of the application?
- So what does a successful DevOps operation look like?
- Have specific policy objectives been defined?

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 Toolchain investments work better.
This Toolchain All-Inclusive Toolkit enables You to be that person:
