Introduction

Widespread IPv6 adoption can only come when those who make key decision regarding the strategy, resources, processes and people in and organisation (i.e. its executives) understand at a strategic and business perspective the importance of IPv6. This module aims to close that knowledge gap and give executives actionable advise on how to evaluate IPv6 strategically as well as support their technical people in deploying it.

This module is part of our strategy to reduce the dissonance between the organisation's technical core and the executive/managerial apex. The objectives of this module are as follows:

  • Educate high level execs on non-tech importance of IPv6
  • Helping drive IPv6 adoption from the executive/managerial top
  • Help governments to produce IPv6 strategic plans/roadmaps

 

Upon completing this module, you will be able to :

 

  • Describe the implications of IPv4 address exhaustion for your organisation
  • Describe the alternatives for continued growth of the Internet
  • Create a high level IPv6 strategy for your organisation
  • Understand the key metrics to look for in your technical team with respect to IPv6 deployment

 

Target Audience

  • Executives and managers
  • Government regulators
  • IT advisors to government officials

 

Pre-requisites

  • An open mind
  • A willingness to keep your organisation technologically relevant
