The Importance of Technical Documentation
Written by Dave Lillie, Documentation Consultant at Technium
Are you documenting your network and security practices?
In today’s ever-evolving technology landscape, companies depend more and more on up-to-date technical documentation to improve an environment and help provide the most up-to-date security practices. Without having this important information available, many tasks would take hours if not days to complete in trying to track down what is correct.
Things you should always document:
- Network Topology
- System Credentials
- Standard Operating Procedures
- Work Instructions
- System Maintenance Schedule
- Troubleshooting Guides and Resolutions
How do you know what/when to document?
Documentation isn’t just about getting things written down; it is about helping customers and engineers effectively and efficiently solve issues that come up. This is a living document that will constantly evolve which is why it is so important to engineers and customers alike to practice updating and reviewing documentation on a regular basis.
At Technium, we take pride in having up-to-date technical documentation, so any issues can be quickly rectified to the best of our abilities with minimal impact to the customer’s operations. This allows you and your business to stay connected.
