“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!”

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.”
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.”
