About Judith Hurwitz
My name is Judith Hurwitz. I have been an infrastructure and enterprise software industry analyst and strategy consultant for several decades. The central focus of my writings is around the cloud. I take a pragmatic and holistic view of the cloud. So I apply my knowledge in service oriented architectures, service management, distributed architectures, systems and applications management, security, information management, collaborative computing, social networking to the cloud. My philosophy is that you simply can’t wall off components of technology if you really want to realistically understand the business value of software. So, I like to have a dialog with you — about how I see the market today and tomorrow I am pragmatic, skeptical, and curious. I have been writing long and short Dummies books for the last two years including the newly published Cloud Computing for Dummies, Service Oriented Architectures for Dummies, Information on Demand for Dummies, Service Management for Dummies (2009), and Collaboration for Dummies.
