Cloud Enterprise Architecture examines enterprise architecture (EA) in the context of the surging popularity of Cloud computing. It explains the different kinds of desired transformations the architectural blocks of EA undergo in light of this strategically significant convergence. Chapters cover each of the contributing architectures of EA—business, information, application, integration, security, and technology—illustrating the current and impending implications of the Cloud on each. Discussing the implications of the Cloud paradigm on EA, the book details the perceptible and positive changes that will affect EA design, governance, strategy, management, and sustenance. The author ties these topics together with chapters on Cloud integration and composition architecture. He also examines the Enterprise Cloud, Federated Clouds, and the vision to establish the InterCloud. Laying out a comprehensive strategy for planning and executing Cloud-inspired transformations, the book: Explains how the Cloud changes and affects enterprise architecture design, governance, strategy, management, and sustenance Presents helpful information on next-generation Cloud computing Describes additional architectural types such as enterprise-scale integration, security, management, and governance architectures This book is an ideal resource for enterprise architects, Cloud evangelists and enthusiasts, and Cloud application and service architects. Cloud center administrators, Cloud business executives, managers, and analysts will also find the book helpful and inspirational while formulating appropriate mechanisms and schemes for sound modernization and migration of traditional applications to Cloud infrastructures and platforms.

Expert practitioners at the FEAC Institute explains how to implement cloud solutions using proven patterns from the field of enterprise architecture. New from the FEAC (Federated Enterprise Architecture Certification) Institute Press, Architecting the Cloud applies the principles of enterprise architecture to planning and deploying a cloud-based strategy for enterprises in keeping with the intrinsic nature of their architectures, whether centralized or decentralized, in-sourced or out-sourced, employee-based or contractor-based. The authors are leading practitioners of enterprise architecture and cloud computing and one of the authors is responsible for defining the cloud computing strategy for the United States Navy. Architecting the Cloud presents models of cloud computing and pairs them with enterprise patterns. It provides a phased, step-by step-strategy for transformation of current operations to a future state that partially or fully leverages cloud computing to derive benefits of capital conservation, on-demand scaling and support for enterprise expansion without a corresponding increase in enterprise IT complexity. The book also focuses on patterns related to the production of cloud environments. Practical case studies help you apply the concepts learned in each chapter Objectives, summaries, and key points reinforce learning Co-author Kenneth Griesi is responsible for defining the cloud computing strategy for the U.S. Navy

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. Now, one of the world’s leading IT innovators explains what it all means—coherently, thoroughly, and authoritatively. Writing for IT executives, architects, and developers alike, world-renowned expert David S. Linthicum explains 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. Cloud Computing and SOA Convergence in Your Enterprise offers a clear-eyed assessment of the challenges associated with this new world—and offers a step-by-step program for getting there with maximum return on investment and minimum risk. Using multiple examples, Linthicum Reviews the powerful cost, value, and risk-related drivers behind the move to cloud computing—and explains why the shift will accelerate Explains the technical underpinnings, supporting technologies, and best-practice methods you’ll need to make the transition Helps you objectively assess the promise of cloud computing and SOA for your organization, quantify value, and make the business case Walks you through evaluating your existing IT infrastructure and finding your most cost-effective, safest path to the “cloud” Shows how to choose the right candidate data, services, and processes for your cloud computing initiatives Guides you through building disruptive infrastructure and next-generation process platforms Helps you bring effective, high-value governance to the clouds If you’re ready to begin driving real competitive advantage from cloud computing, this book is the start-to-finish roadmap you need to make it happen.
