5.0 out of 5 stars A great read 17 Nov. 2010
By Adrian - Published on
Format:Perfect Paperback
This book is exactly what it claims to be, no more no less. Firstly, what this book is not - it is not a technical introduction to Cloud Computing, SOA, BPM or any of the other acronyms being thrown around lately. It is also not one author's viewpoint on these topics.
It is simply a comprehensive, up to the minute compendium of the state of the IT industry with respect to these new concepts and ideas. And in this respect it is brilliant. It provides an incredibly accurate account of the meaning behind the terms Cloud, SOA, BPM, SaaS, Social Networking, tweets and a dozen other buzzwords, painting a picture that is unified, and complete. How it manages to draw upon so many different viewpoints, from so many experts and SMEs and bring all of this information together to form a cohesive whole is impressive. But it does so. And in doing so this book captures how the IT industry is and will evolve around these issues at a strategic level - exactly as it promises on the cover. If you are a business leader wanting to see into the future, then the only thing that would make this book better is if it was spherical and made out of solid crystal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Particularly enjoyed Private/Public/Hybrid cloud discussion 14 Sept. 2010
By Vinnie Mirchandani - Published on
Format:Perfect Paperback
Good, crisp read. We are seeing the battle for the soul of enterprise computing for the next decade or so depending on whether they virtualize and keep computing in-house or take to the far more efficient public cloud. I enjoyed that discussion in book the most. I also enjoy Peter Fingar's style (from earlier books) - he is about big IT and BPM thoughts and unafraid to use colorful language to make points.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Survival Guide for Enterprises on 'Business Technology' 13 Sept. 2010
By Lena - Published on
Format:Perfect Paperback
This book is a must read!
It brings clarity in the on-going discussions on Cloud Computing, demystifying the current hype.
It gives a straight overview on what Cloud Computing is and isn't. And most important: it is about Enterprise Business, about Business Innovation.
I had the opportunity to work with one of the authors: Andy Mulholland, in Cloud Computing Events and discussions with Enterprise Business and IT Seniors.
In these challenging times, books like this are a guides to survive and excel with your Enterprise, creating new profit,

2.0 out of 5 stars Review 28 Aug. 2010
By Greenmachine - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I had high expectations starting this book. I ended up skipping though much of it because this seems to be more of a snapshot of what has been going on over the last 10 years. If your new to cloud technology and know nothing this is a good book to bring you up to scratch. If your looking for insight into the future or you already are competent there's not enough points to make the purchase of this book worth while.
