What\'s the point of \"point\"?

I don\'t know at all - I\'m far from being an IT expert.

Obviously no offence at all taken - very valid comments you make.

neutral  Charlie Bavington: hmm, fair enough but what do you think "un point de parametrage" is driving at? You answer seems OK if it was just "diagnostiquer le parametrage..." // Yeah I saw that, my query was genuine 'cos the point of "le point" is lost on me...

Assess parameter settings/parameterisation


Explanation:
Diagnostiquer - while IT systems often have "diagnostic" tools, these are generally automated gubbins that do all the work for you. As a verb, I often find that "diagnostiquer" when people are involved often means simply "assess". Seems to be a bit of an IT buzzword in French these days...

Parametrage is (usually) the act of setting the parameters - as Connor says, you can often paraphrase to just "settings", depends on the context. Parameterisation is a bit of a mouthful & some people don't like it.

I truly don't see the point of "le point", but I thought I'd best post an answer, so people don't think I'm just gonna sit and snipe from the sidelines.
One possibility could be that is genuinely one single point/aspect of the parameter settings that the Provider is going to help out the Client with (leaving the client to work out the rest for himself?)
Another is that it's superfluous nonsense - but in a contract...?

I'd be inclined to ask, quite honestly...
