This excerpt comes from a book that explains why the days of managing IT organizations as private fortresses will rapidly disappear as IT becomes a global community.
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, author David S. Linthicum says.
Writing for IT executives, architects, and developers alike, Linthicum explains in his book "Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise" 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.
