Policy: This week we have two focuses. First, I included in your reading the first four chapters of Dan Sullivan’s book, Cloud Computing. I think you will find it an easy go. Pay particular attention to cost benefits and disruptors. Next, I included a webinar on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Amazon has a HUGE imprint on the cloud market, and parlays a number of API services. The video is 56 minutes. You will find many parallels to the Sullivan book, so I would watch it first. Last, there is a two-page handout kind of information page. Focus on AWS as a case study. Lets discuss the benefits and risks, and how we can anticipate an overall RoI for conversion to cloud based AWS or similar platforms.
