Praise for Lessons in Grid Computing: The System Is a Mirror

"You should not overlook the potential genius in this concept."
—Geoffrey Moore, consultant and author, Dealing with Darwin

"Since he first identified 'information systems as mirrors of the people who build them' for me, I have seen it operate in many ways. It is a fascinating idea, and a completely new way of thinking about technology."
—Sean Moriarty, Chief Operating Officer, Ticketmaster

"This book makes for compelling reading—it's easy to become immersed in the stories, and the insights gradually grow in the reader's mind as they take root in the character's minds. This is quite a useful work. The ideas presented here could be quickly put to practical use in any organization."
—Mohamed Muhsin, VP and CIO, The World Bank

A breakthrough exploration of information systems as mirrors of the people who build them.

Packed with truer-than-life stories, stimulating characters, and unique IT analysis, Lessons in Grid Computing: The System Is a Mirror finally declares:

  • Our systems will not "talk to each other" if our people are not talking to each other
  • We must transform ourselves to the same degree that we want to transform our systems
  • To correct problems in our information systems, we must first address the problems between the people that build and support them

Discover how to adjust your management style to enable the next generation of technologies with the help of Lessons in Grid Computing: The System Is a Mirror.
