GovCloud II: Implementation and Cloud Brokerage Services Now Available

I’m happy and proud to announce the release of my second book, “GovCloud II: Implementation and Cloud Brokerage Services” by my publisher Government Training Inc.

 

The public and private sector have vigorously embraced cloud computing and its implementation is increasing efficiency and return on investment with significant savings in cost.

Implementation, however, has not been without problems which is why publication of GovCloud:Cloud Computing for the Business of Government last year was so timely. It contained an easy to understand five step process that explained what cloud computing is all about and what are the best options to meet particular needs. It discussed in detail all the latest developments in this area – from administration requirements to the search for industry-wide standards.

Now authors Kevin Jackson and Don Philpott have followed up this highly-acclaimed manual with GovCloud II: Implementation and Cloud Brokerage Services, a handbook aimed at IT professionals and senior decision-making managers that outlines and explains an industry-leading approach to cloud transition and adoption.

When properly deployed using the most appropriate services, the cloud computing model provides greatly enhanced mission and business capability without a commensurate increase in resource – time, people or money- expenditures. Too often in the past Federal IT projects ran over budget, were behind schedule, or failed to deliver promised functionality, he said.

Many projects used “grand design” approaches that aimed to deliver functionality every few years, rather than breaking projects into more manageable chunks and demanding new functionality every few quarters. In addition, the Federal Government too often relied on large, custom, proprietary systems when “light technologies” or shared services exist.

Of particular interest are chapters on Cloud Planning, Provisioning and Management which focuses on cloud transition and adoption, and PaaS, which give readers an insightful and true understanding of the power of this platform.

Cloud computing is a new approach in the provisioning and consumption of information technology (IT). While technology is a crucial component, the real value of cloud computing lies in its ability to enable new capabilities or in the execution of current capabilities in more efficient and effective ways. This handbook tells you how and explains in details the options available to you.
