https://www.amazon.com/High-Velocity-ITSM-Management-Computi...
If you read through this book and still don’t believe there is a critical need for IT Service Management then good luck seeing if you can survive in IT for the next 5 years. Agile, DevOps, Lean IT, Virtualization, Application Lifecycle Management, Cloud Computing and many other technologies are rapidly pulling IT in many directions. These modern ways of operating IT to cope with a world of rapid change will not go away. Somehow they need to be pulled together to avoid the chaos. Service Management is the glue needed to hold these all together.There is no IT value for the business until the point a service is received. For this reason, this book is written for IT leaders, managers and practitioners from a Service Management perspective. Having the best development practices, be it Agile, DevOps or others means little if a service is not delivered to the business. When they need it.High Velocity ITSM is about transitioning the IT Organization from traditional waterfall slower service development and support to a service delivery organization operating at high velocity.This book provides practical guidance for: ? Transitioning IT towards high velocity ITSM ? Using Agile and DevOps for rapid service build ? Using Lean IT to operate at high velocity ? Streamlining your ITSM management processes ? Building a Lean IT CSI Program ? Learning and applying modern IT methods …and much more!

Machine Learning: The New AI (The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series)

https://www.amazon.com/Machine-Learning-Press-Essential-Know...
Today, machine learning underlies a range of applications we use every day, from product recommendations to voice recognition -- as well as some we don't yet use everyday, including driverless cars. It is the basis of the new approach in computing where we do not write programs but collect data; the idea is to learn the algorithms for the tasks automatically from data. As computing devices grow more ubiquitous, a larger part of our lives and work is recorded digitally, and as "Big Data" has gotten bigger, the theory of machine learning -- the foundation of efforts to process that data into knowledge -- has also advanced. In this book, machine learning expert Ethem Alpaydin offers a concise overview of the subject for the general reader, describing its evolution, explaining important learning algorithms, and presenting example applications.Alpaydin offers an account of how digital technology advanced from number-crunching mainframes to mobile devices, putting today's machine learning boom in context. He describes the basics of machine learning and some applications; the use of machine learning algorithms for pattern recognition; artificial neural networks inspired by the human brain; algorithms that learn associations between instances, with such applications as customer segmentation and learning recommendations; and reinforcement learning, when an autonomous agent learns act so as to maximize reward and minimize penalty. Alpaydin then considers some future directions for machine learning and the new field of "data science," and discusses the ethical and legal implications for data privacy and security.

Introduction to Middleware: Web Services, Object Components, and Cloud Computing

https://www.amazon.com/Introduction-Middleware-Services-Comp...
"A stereotype of computer science textbooks is that they are dry, boring, and sometimes even intimidating. As a result, they turn students’ interests off from the subject matter instead of enticing them into it. This textbook is the opposite of such a stereotype. The author presents the subject matter in a refreshing story-telling style and aims to bring the Internet-generation of students closer to her stories."?--Yingcai Xiao, The University of AkronIntroduction to Middleware: Web Services, Object Components, and Cloud Computing provides a comparison of different middleware technologies and the overarching middleware concepts they are based on. The various major paradigms of middleware are introduced and their pros and cons are discussed. This includes modern cloud interfaces, including the utility of Service Oriented Architectures. The text discusses pros and cons of RESTful vs. non-RESTful web services, and also compares these to older but still heavily used distributed object/component middleware. The text guides readers to select an appropriate middleware technology to use for any given task, and to learn new middleware technologies as they appear over time without being greatly overwhelmed by any new concept. The book begins with an introduction to different distributed computing paradigms, and a review of the different kinds of architectures, architectural styles/patterns, and properties that various researchers have used in the past to examine distributed applications and determine the quality of distributed applications. Then it includes appropriate background material in networking and the web, security, and encoding necessary to understand detailed discussion in this area. The major middleware paradigms are compared, and a comparison methodology is developed. Readers will learn how to select a paradigm and technology for a particular task, after reading this text.Detailed middleware technology review sections allow students or industry practitioners working to expand their knowledge to achieve practical skills based on real projects so as to become well-functional in that technology in industry. Major technologies examined include: RESTful web services (RESTful cloud interfaces such as OpenStack, AWS EC2 interface, CloudStack; AJAX, JAX-RS, ASP.NET MVC and ASP.NET Core), non-RESTful (SOAP and WSDL-based) web services (JAX-WS, Windows Communication Foundation), distributed objects/ components (Enterprise Java Beans, .NET Remoting, CORBA).The book presents two projects that can be used to illustrate the practical use of middleware, and provides implementations of these projects over different technologies.This versatile and class-tested textbook is suitable (depending on chapters selected) for undergraduate or first-year graduate courses on client server architectures, middleware, and cloud computing, web services, and web programming.
