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). Drawing on her extensive experience working with enterprise clients to deliver high-value cloud solutions, Isom presents:- Practical business cases, vignettes, and techniques including outsourcing considerations that will help consumers understand when cloud investments make sense; and help providers understand the expectations of cloud consumers- Explanations of why it's important to reflect current Enterprise Architecture in cloud decision-making, what happens when companies don't, and why it is important to update EA to incorporate cloud considerations- Insights to organizations that may not have an EA and the business benefits of embracing EA principles to incorporate cloud into your organization.- Techniques for developing an enterprise cloud adoption strategy that includes guidance on identifying and prioritizing cloud candidates and enablers- Financial considerations that should be communicated and incorporated into your strategy for current and downstream project effectiveness- Includes a foreword by IBM Fellow Kerrie Holley, co-inventor of Service-Oriented Modeling and Architecture (SOMA) and the Service Integration Maturity Model (SIMM).
