NEW YORK, March 2, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- "Ever get the nagging feeling there's something important you've overlooked? This book can help make sure you've thought everything through before you jump into the cloud." These comments are excerpted from CIO Magazine's "What We're Reading" List for March 1st, 2011, pertaining to the book "Thinking of... Force.com As Your Key to the Cloud Kingdom."

Whether you are a CEO or a CTO, Force.com as your key to the Cloud Kingdom is the one book you will need to read, if you are interested in building your business in salesforce.com 's cloud. It is available for purchase at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

The book is written by cloud veterans, Alok Misra (Principal at Navatar Group, one of the top ISV partners of salesforce.com ) and Ian Gotts (CEO at Nimbus, a leading cloud provider of business process management software). It includes a four page Foreword from Parker Harris, cofounder and executive vice president at salesforce.com.

As the title suggests, the book relentlessly focuses on how to achieve commercial success in the cloud. The authors provide case studies highlighting common errors that ISVs make; such as relying on agile methodologies or assuming multitenancy will automatically happen – errors that can be fatal. They also offer critical insights and recommendations, many of which go against conventional wisdom.

"It's not necessarily easy to get a quick return on investment from a cloud business," observed Alok Misra. "This book will serve as a comprehensive guide to help you focus on the critical areas, to achieve commercial success."
