January 2011


Every month it looks like more and more readers are abandoning the hard copy versions of books.  While this migration doesn’t mean the death of the book as we know it today – it does mean that more and more people want the content in the way that’s most convenient (or cost effective) for them.  (I can’t remember the last time I rented a movie on a DVD thanks to my options).  Our publishing partner – Pearson – is running a great deal on the PDF version of IBM Press books.  So grab your books at 40% off and forget having to wait for the UPS truck!

The New Language of Marketing 2.0: How to Use ANGELS to Energize Your Market by Sandy Carter

Sandy Carter ie “Social Sandy” is an IBM VP and ultimate marketing and social media/networking expert.

 

On December 27, IBM Press published it’s final book for 2010.  Given the interest in Information on Demand, it’s no suprise that the book is on data integration.

Data Integration Blueprint and Modeling: Techniques for a Scalable and Sustainable Architecture by Anthony Giordano is a great book

Anthony begins with an overview of the “patterns” of data integration, showing how to build blueprints that smoothly handle both operational and analytic data integration. Next, he walks through the entire project lifecycle, explaining each phase, activity, task, and deliverable through a complete case study. Finally, he shows how to integrate data integration with other information management disciplines, from data governance to metadata. The book’s appendices bring together key principles, detailed models, and a complete data integration glossary.
