Scrum process work items and workflow

Scrum is a popular iterative and incremental agile framework for managing product and software development. For planning a project, tracking the defects, bugs, work and blocking issues when developing software, viewing and reporting a progress, the teams working with Scrum methodology use the product backlog items (PBIs), bug work item types (WITs), reports and dashboards. When defining a product backlog item, you can focus on the value which will be received by your customers without description how this will be achieved. Working in sprints, the teams can define tasks which automatically link to PBIs and bugs.

Campus Area Networks (CAN). Computer and Network Examples →

If we divide computer networks by scale, we get several main categories. The smallest network is PAN, as it connects personal devices themselves, and as the number of users grows, a local area network can be recognized, and campus area networks (CAN) connects several local networks located within some area like a university or a corporation. Computers connected to CAN share public educational materials and list of CAN network examples includes such prestigious universities like Stanford and Carnegie Mellon. This is an example of a computer network diagram created for a campus area network. It was created using using ConceptDraw solution for the Computer and Network diagramming. The specific of this sample campus network is its distribution. It is rather broad to embrace a big campus territory. This diagram can be applied as a template for designing custom area network topology diagram for a particular educational institution.Campus Area Networks (CAN). <br>Computer and Network Examples *
