pl see below:
1. What would be the no.of inventory you expect to plot in a map. -
It will vary based on customer to customer. For me it will be 3-4 inventory, 1 router, 1 switch and 1-2 servers per branch. I have 100 branch offices.
2. Are these customer locations or branch offices or DCs in different regions?.
For me its branch offices. Yes, DCs are in a different location. I don't think you can plot DCs on a map as we expect there will be 100s of inventories in a DC. Or may be allow to plot a monitoring group (representing inventories in a branch office, or DCs etc) on the map, that would help.
3. What kind of boundary do different location require? country / state / city based visibility?
For us its one state (NSW in Australia), but again it will vary customer to customer. You have to give the flexibility to a customer to set a zoom level that is suitable to that customer or suitable for a specific dashboard and maintain that zoom level and the geo-location.
