End to End, or E2E - Maybe a defintion

by SteveM@UK In reply to What is "end to end"?

On the Internet, E2E (or sometimes called end to end) has been used to mean exchange-to-exchange - that is, the exchange of information or transactions between Web sites that themselves serve as exchanges or brokers for goods and services between businesses. E2E can be thought of along the lines of B2B (business to business).

This may not be the only definition of 'end to end', but it may be a start

Beginning to end

by James R Linn In reply to What is "end to end"?

As technology has gotten more complex and added many layers, we tend to get focussed on one particular aspect.

In my world end to end means the whole process, from the client to the network to to the middle tier to the server to the other server,to the printer etc., encompassing all aspects and interactions of the application or service.

Hope that helps,

James

End to end...

by Peter Moriarty In reply to What is "end to end"?

End to end relates to a complete solution that resolves all aspects of a problem. It can be construed in a couple of ways, examples of which follow:-

1/ Solving a problem geographically from one end to the other - eg connecting up offices with a link is not an end to end solution, but connecting them up with all the software and hardware they need to operate would be an end to end solution as it is a complete solution.
OR
2/ Solving an internal problem that allows people to complete a flowof work from start to finish or "end to end".

I hope this helps.

Thanks for replies

Thanks to all who have replied to my question. I think what it boils down to is that it is up to you to define what the "ends" are. I love jargon!

PM End-to-end

by timdockins In reply to Thanks for replies

That's so true. When working as a PM at Sprint, we used the term "end-to-end project management" quite a bit. That meant we'd manage a project from request/discovery through development to managing operations.
