This is the first complete guide to cloud decision-making for executives and leaders in both technology and non-technology roles. IBM Global Business Services Executive Architect Pamela K. Isom shows how to maximize the value of cloud adoption in your enterprise though the use and/or extension of EA (your integrated business and IT strategy).
