Reviews

"This is the 'holy grail' of system upgrade and migration management books. It shows you how to manage system upgrades, maintenance and administration--including system integrity."—John Vacca, information technology consultant and author of High-Speed Cisco Networks: Planning, Design ,and Implementation "The authors are providing a framework for analysis, critical evaluation and a practical approach to selecting technology for your enterprise. The 'What should I buy?' will take care of itself, once you understand the 'How should I buy it?'"—Doric Earle, Senior Contact Center Architect and Senior Manager of Professional Services for Nortel Networks, Enterprise Portal Solutions. "The value proposition this book offers readers is not looking at technology for technology's sake, but looking at technology 'to solve problems that do not yet exist.'"—Gerry Dupuis, Director, Consulting Practice, SOFTEL Communications, Inc. "Everybody from the CIO responsible for corporate IT direction to the lone programmer developing code to support this direction should read this book to understand how their work affects their clients."—Peter Bielawski, Principal Engineer, Mitretek Systems
