Packt Invites IBM Cloud Computing Authors and Book Ideas.
Packt Publishing plans to advance its line-up of enterprise focused titles, and invites potential authors with IBM Cloud Computing expertise and book ideas.
Do you have the cloud computing book ideas we are looking for?
The Cloud is growing...and so is IBM
The Cloud has gone mainstream and is already revolutionalizing the way that companies think about and use their technology, with the market for Cloud Computing products and services set to reach $126B by 2012. IBM has an array of Cloud Computing products that promise to significantly improve business performance, lower the costs of delivering data center resources to the organization, and foster rapid innovation and decision making.
IBM’S expanding portfolio of Cloud Computing products, and the constant enhancements and developments to existing ones, brings about the need to offer books and valuable information to the IBM Cloud Computing community.
A world of possibilities...
There are not many IBM Cloud Computing books on the market, yet there is a wide range of audiences for IBM Cloud information. This creates a need for a broad range of books to meet the requirements of these audiences.
Packt wants to develop focused and practical IBM Cloud Computing books…
Packt is keen to develop IBM Cloud Computing books across a range of existing series, from Beginner’s Guides and Cookbooks, to advanced tutorials for the more advanced Cloud Computing offerings.
We are keen to hear ideas for IBM Cloud Computing books covering Development and Test, Collaboration, Desktop Workloads, Information Workloads and Business Services amongst others.
