Overview: “This book is a guide to building information systems at the “edge of chaos”–that sweet spot for productive change, where front line workers have the capability to pursue their own solutions with minimal central control. The advent of cloud computing presents an unprecedented opportunity for organizations to revolutionize the way in which they build information systems, and in so doing, transform their business. Information systems will become increasingly more critical to the success of every enterprise. How they are built and how they are used should therefore be foremost on the mind of anyone responsible for the well-being of an organization.”
