index – (TEMMi)

JANUARY, 2016

With 45%+ Infrastructure & License Spend being for Non Production & with IT Projects losing up to 20% in Productivity due to IT Environment issues. It is now clear that Test Environment Management can’t be ignored.

It was in recognition of these problems that enov8 decided to create the TEMMi. The TEMMi (Test Environment Management Maturity Index) is a simple “model that you can use to quickly analyse your company’s current capabilities and then look to refine and optimize.

The TEMMi is based on evaluating the eight top areas of TEM, these are:

  1. Environment Knowledge Management
  2. Environment Demand Awareness
  3. Environment Planning & Coordination
  4. Environment Service Management
  5. Application Orchestration/Automation
  6. Data Orchestration/Automation
  7. Infra Orchestration/Automation
  8. Status Accounting & Reporting

 

Measure yourself by looking at each area & their sub points.
