9780136009221: Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise: A Step-by-Step Guide: How to Use SaaS, SOA, Mashups, and Web 2.0 to Break Down the IT Gates (Addison-Wesley Information Technology)

 “In this book, David Linthicum does that rarest of things: he manages to combine showing why SOA and Cloud Computing complement one another with a lucid game plan of how a business can take advantage of the synergies between them in concrete ways that will contribute to the bottom line.”
—Jeremy Geelan
Conference Chair, Cloud Computing Conference and Expo series
Sr. VP, SYS-CON Media and Events

Massive, disruptive change is coming to IT as Software as a Service (SaaS), SOA, mashups, Web 2.0, and cloud computing truly come of age. Now, one of the world’s leading IT innovators explains what it all means—coherently, thoroughly, and authoritatively.

Writing for IT executives, architects, and developers alike, world-renowned expert David S. Linthicum explains why the days of managing IT organizations as private fortresses will rapidly disappear as IT inevitably becomes a global community. He demonstrates how to run IT when critical elements of customer, product, and business data and processes extend far beyond the firewall—and how to use all that information to deliver real-time answers about everything from an individual customer’s credit to the location of a specific cargo container.

Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise offers a clear-eyed assessment of the challenges associated with this new world—and offers a step-by-step program for getting there with maximum return on investment and minimum risk. Using multiple examples, Linthicum:

  • Reviews the powerful cost, value, and risk-related drivers behind the move to cloud computing—and explains why the shift will accelerate
  • Explains the technical underpinnings, supporting technologies, and best-practice methods you’ll need to make the transition
  • Helps you objectively assess the promise of SaaS, Web 2.0, and SOA for your organization, quantify value, and make the business case
  • Walks you through evaluating your existing IT infrastructure and finding your most cost-effective, safest path to the “cloud”
  • Shows how to choose the right candidate data, services, and processes for your cloud computing initiatives
  • Guides you through building disruptive infrastructure and next-generation process platforms
  • Helps you bring effective, high-value governance to the clouds
If you’re ready to begin driving real competitive advantage from cloud computing, this book is the start-to-finish roadmap you need to make it happen.

Review:

Praise for Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise
“Cloud computing is a hot topic today in business circles for its potential to transform IT service delivery and galvanize service-oriented architecture. David Linthicum is one of the foremost authorities in the strategic application of technology to business, and this book is required reading for those looking to reap the rewards of cloud computing in the enterprise.”
—Dion Hinchcliffe
Enterprise Web 2.0 Expert and ZDNet blogger,
President/CTO of Hinchcliffe & Company

“In this book, David Linthicum does that rarest of things: He manages to combine showing why SOA and cloud computing complement one another with a lucid game plan of how a business can take advantage of the synergies between them in concrete ways that will contribute to the bottom line.”
—Jeremy Geelan
Conference Chair, Cloud Computing Conference and Expo Series,
Senior Vice President, SYS-CON Media & Events

“This book cuts through all of the hype and confusion of cloud computing and brings us back to the basics of architecture. Finally, someone wrote a book that is not just about semantics but instead guides us through a methodical approach for delivering solutions in the cloud. I highly recommend this book!”
—Mike Kavis
Chief Technology Officer of MDot,
Vice President and Director of Social Technologies for CAEAP

“David Linthicum has a talent for explaining how technology issues impact business decisions and strategy. Linthicum never gives you just another technical discussion about the latest tech fad. Instead, he explains the technology and the relevant business issues that both business and IT audiences need to understand before investing in cloud computing.”
—Loraine Lawson
Award-winning journalist and blogger for IT Business Edge

“As cloud computing stokes the embers of the SOA hype, practitioners can count on pragmatic and opportunistic advice from Dave Linthicum. Cloud computing brings time-to-value to SOA by leveraging other people’s work. In this excellent guide book, Dave shares a step-by-step plan for organizations to determine which of their services, information, and processes are good candidates to reside in, and come from, the clouds.”
—Brenda M. Michelson
Principal, Elemental Links
