This book covers topics related to creating Java microservices and deploy them to Kubernetes and OpenShift.
Traditionally, Java developers have been used to developing large, complex monolithic applications. The experience of developing and deploying monoliths has been always slow and painful. This book will help Java developers to quickly get started with the features and the concerns of the microservices architecture. It will introduce Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift to help them deploying their microservices.
The book is written for Java developers who wants to build microservices using the Spring Boot/Cloud stack and who wants to deploy them to Kubernetes and OpenShift.
You will be guided on how to install the appropriate tools to work properly. For those who are new to Enterprise Development using Spring Boot, you will be introduced to its core principles and main features thru a deep step-by-step tutorial on many components. For experts, this book offers some recipes that illustrate how to split monoliths and implement microservices and deploy them as containers to Kubernetes and OpenShift.
The following are some of the key challenges that we will address in this book:
- Introducing Spring Boot/Cloud for beginners
- Splitting a monolith using the Domain Driven Design approach
- Implementing the cloud & microservices patterns
- Rethinking the deployment process
- Introducing containerization, Docker, Kubernetes and OpenShift
By the end of reading this book, you will have practical hands-on experience of building microservices using Spring Boot/Cloud and you will master deploying them as containers to Kubernetes and OpenShift.

David Enstrom, a published author with education and extensive experience in the field, places the Business Process Model and Notationthe titles BPMNat the heart of the Unified Architecture MethodUAMthat undergirds this works method. The highly structured contents of A Simplified Approach to IT Architecture with BPMN cover an array of topics: the demystification of IT architecture; the description of UAM; how to architect-in IT security; the delineation of Business, Logical, and Technical Perspectives; and the depiction of architectural patterns.
The additions of a bibliography, a glossary, several supplementary sections, and an index supplement the main presentation in A Simplified Approach to IT Architecture with BPMN, rendering it a comprehensive source for IT professionals charged with responsibilities for IT architecture at every level of the enterprise.
Another way of viewing OLAP is getting a typical company out of the custom-report-writing business and into the data-cube-server building business. An OLAP data structure can be thought of as a Rubik's Cube of data that users can twist and twirl in different ways to work through what-if and what-happened scenerios to get at the whys of the situation. Within an OLAP environment, the focus is on performing dictionary definition and maintenance as well as mapping flat files or relational columns to dimensions and measures. Although this may sound like a lot of work, managing one data cube is more efficient than writing a number of custom reports. Currently, some vendors provide administrative tools to get the data into the cubes in the first place, in the proper form, and on a regular basis. Hence, the job of managing data has been simplified for users.
The book covers the fundamentals of information system quality management, and their quality improvement. The creation of models, algorithms, methods, and tools for improving the information system quality in terms of system development, operation, and evolution is also considered. A comprehensive information system quality management system is proposed as a quality improvement tool, and as a new category of information and control systems. Goals, objectives, functions, structure, development and functioning of such systems are presented.
The book is intended for information system developers, experts, researchers, doctorate students who deal with the information system quality assurance, and for university students majoring in Applied Computer Science, Computer Science for Business, Information Technology, Automated Systems, Information Management, and similar subjects.

Aspiring digital businesses need overall IT agility, not just development team agility. In Agile IT Organization Design , IT management consultant and ThoughtWorks veteran Sriram Narayan shows how to infuse agility throughout your organization. Drawing on more than fifteen years’ experience working with enterprise clients in IT-intensive industries, he introduces an agile approach to “Business–IT Effectiveness” that is as practical as it is valuable.
The author shows how structural, political, operational, and cultural facets of organization design influence overall IT agility—and how you can promote better collaboration across diverse functions, from sales and marketing to product development, and engineering to IT operations. Through real examples, he helps you evaluate and improve organization designs that enhance autonomy, mastery, and purpose: the key ingredients for a highly motivated workforce.

In the rapidly changing digital economy, you can't succeed by merely tweaking management practices that led to past success. And yet, while many leaders and managers recognize the threat from digital--and the potential opportunity--they lack a common language and compelling framework to help them assess it and guide them in responding. They don't know how to think about their digital business model.
In this concise, practical book, MIT digital research leaders Peter Weill and Stephanie Woerner provide a powerful yet straightforward framework that has been field-tested globally with dozens of senior management teams. Based on years of study at the MIT Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), the authors find that digitization is moving companies' business models on two dimensions: from value chains to digital ecosystems, and from a fuzzy understanding of the needs of end customers to a sharper one. Looking at these dimensions in combination results in four distinct business models, each with different capabilities. The book then sets out six driving questions, in separate chapters, that help managers and executives clarify where they are currently in an increasingly digital business landscape and highlight what's needed to move toward a higher-value digital business model.
Filled with straightforward self-assessments, motivating examples, and sharp financial analyses of where profits are made, this smart book will help you tackle the threats, leverage the opportunities, and create winning digital strategies.
