HASH(0xa0c45330) out of 5 stars Very good overview of difference between implementing onpremise, Azure or O365 services July 20 2013

I am not a programmer, but I manage coders and infrastructure staff. This book was a very good resource in allowing us to decide whether or not to use Azure or O365 for certain cloud services. If you were like me and were confused by some of the differences between Azure and O365 AND you find the marketing fluff from Microsoft inadequate, then get this book for your team so you can dive deep on the differences between the two services and the challenges you will face with implementing services in either environment..
