McLean, VA (PRWEB) March 25, 2013
Jason Bloomberg, President of ZapThink, a Dovel Technologies company, released his fourth book today. Published by John Wiley & Sons, The Agile Architecture Revolution: How Cloud Computing, REST-based SOA, and Mobile Computing are Changing Enterprise IT lays out a multidimensional roadmap for achieving business agility through agile approaches to enterprise architecture. Both visionary and realistic, the book delves into the convergence of technology concepts and how they have the power to change the way enterprises create and leverage software.
“Cloud Computing, enterprise mobility, and agile architectural approaches like SOA and REST represent dramatic forces of change in the IT organization,” commented Bloomberg. “Taken together along with all the other transformative forces in IT, such trends signal a true paradigm shift that will reinvent how enterprises leverage technology in the coming decade.”
Jason Bloomberg is a global thought leader in the areas of Cloud Computing, Enterprise Architecture, and Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA). He created the Licensed ZapThink Architect (LZA) SOA course and associated credential, and runs the LZA course as well as his Cloud Computing for Architects course around the world. He is a frequent conference speaker, prolific writer, and DevX. He has also joined GigaOM as an Analyst in the area of Cloud Computing. He will be joining a GigaOM Webinar on the topic OpenStack: Building portability, security, and trust in the cloud on March 27.
The Agile Architecture Revolution first discusses why traditional, integration-centric approaches to architecture fail to deliver business agility, and how a governance-centric approach to architecting the enterprise as a complex system delivers on the promise of agility. Part two discusses the ZapThink 2020 Vision of how technological, organizational, and societal changes intertwine to create a paradigm shift in how enterprises view and leverage technology. In part three, the book focuses on implementing Agile Architecture with an in-depth consideration of Cloud Computing, Representational State Transfer (REST), and Enterprise Architecture. Tying these threads together makes the case for an Agile Architecture Revolution where enterprises no longer simply create and deploy software for specific purposes, but instead architect it to change as the needs of the business evolve.
“This book describes a true revolution, a different way of thinking about how we build and leverage software,” said David S. Linthicum, Cloud Computing and SOA thought leader, author, blogger, and consultant in his foreword. “It’s a revolution in how we think about architecture. It’s a revolution in how we think about software development. It’s a revolution in how we think about IT supporting the business. Also, it’s a revolution in how we think about leveraging new platforms such as Cloud Computing.”
Bloomberg will be signing copies of the book at the CloudConnect Conference in Santa Clara, California on April 4th and Enterprise Data World in San Diego, California on April 30th. He will be speaking on the Agile Architecture Revolution at CloudConnect and Enterprise Data World as well as at the Open Group Conference in Sydney, Australia on April 17th.
For over a decade, ZapThink has cut through the hype surrounding agile architecture for the enterprise. We forged a path for organizations planning and implementing Service-Oriented Architecture worldwide. Now, as a Dovel Technologies company, ZapThink continues to drive innovation in SOA, Cloud and Enterprise Architecture with its market leading Licensed ZapThink Architect SOA course and Cloud Computing for Architects course that provide Agile Architecture insight and best practices for both government and private sector enterprises.
