Benefits of this course are:

This two day Visio for IT Professionals training course will show you how to produce and keep up to date multiple Visio diagrams of IT infrastructure. See how Visio short cuts and automation can reduce the time and improve the accuracy of diagrams. The course will show you how to automate data centres, racks, cabling, networks, servers and software diagrams. Through working examples, you will see how to link Visio to spreadsheets and databases to minimise errors and the numbers of diagrams required for IT systems documentation.

Delegates who will benefit from this course are:

  • Anyone involved in creating, maintaining or working with infrastructure diagrams covering IT systems.
  • Projects and operations teams who rely on systems documentation for decisions and communication.
  • Managers who want consistent and coordinated diagrams of IT system complexity.
  • IT specialists who look to integrate Visio diagramming with data in Excel or databases.
