I would have wished this book exists 2 years ago. My personal experience in enterprise cloud adoption resonates much with various sections in this book. Deliberately maintaining a cloud service provider neutral narrative, much arguments, metaphors, examples, do’s and don’s in the book sound unusually convincing as they reflect the reality I observe on the ground. A much needed guidance for those genuinely look for sustainable value realization from cloud.

Straight to the point: this book gets at the very best a C. I picked up the book based on reviews and based on the contents whereby I thought the author was humorous and it was a fun read. Indeed the book leans heavily on the anecdotal side and humor side than real IT. If you have a background in IT, you would never pick up this book; there are tons and tons of incredible articles on Cloud Migration and Cloud Strategies for free on the web, published by accomplished techies. Is it possible that an accomplished Gregor Hohpe author above can write a lukewarm book? Yes, Yes it is possible. This book truly feels like the author wrote a bunch of experiences on napkins while flying in an airplane between sipping martinis. There are a few extremely high level concepts that are worth being aware, these are at the 10,000 ft level. And Yes it is possible that some companies miss out on these very basic concepts. For example: "getting new features into production quickly is a core competency" ... pretty basic and straightforward to most in IT or the business side of an organization ... Anyways, the book is 300 pages, you can dedicate reading it, where there are absolutely no concrete examples to support the statements or you can search the web. BTW if the author would have had some insight from academia, he would have realized that nothing ever hits a home run without specific examples that show a person the logic. It's like going thru college, but never doing any of the homework assignments: you can't learn .... Hope this helps...
