Book Description

Enterprise Cloud Strategy - Guidance for enterprises looking for proven methods to take their application portfolio to the cloud.

What if you were able to achieve both efficiency and innovation in all business domains and applications across your entire portfolio? What if you could take advantage of the cloud and all of its resources and features to gain a "the whole is greater than the sum of its parts" effect? With a good road map and proven strategies to lead the way, you can.

Microsoft has done extensive research into what it means to move an enterprise environment with its application catalogue to the cloud.

In the recently published book "Enterprise Cloud Strategy" by Eduardo Kassner and Barry Briggs, we provide examples and learning experiences from Microsoft's own journey, as well as from those of our customers.
