2 New Resources Added to IT Strategies from Oracle Library

IT Strategies from Oracle, an authorized library of guidelines and reference architectures, has just been updated to include two new documents:

  • A Pragmatic Approach to Cloud Adoption
    For enterprises that seek to transform their own IT capabilities and avoid adverse disruption in the process, a structured and pragmatic approach to Cloud computing is required. This practitioner guide details a framework that can be used within any organization for developing such an approach to Cloud adoption.
  • Oracle's Approach to Cloud
    Successful adoption of Cloud computing requires the definition of an approach that aligns with business drivers and operational capabilities. This is why Oracle has developed a pragmatic approach, based on experience with numerous companies, to help customers successfully adopt Cloud. This data sheet provides an executive overview of Oracle's proven approach to Cloud.

These two new resources join a collection of dozens of documents covering Service-Oriented Architecture, Event-Driven Architecture, Business Process Management, and Cloud Computing. Registration is required to access the material, but it's all free.
