It provides a unique value chain approach to integrating the COBIT, ITIL, and CMM frameworks into a coherent, unified whole. It presents a field-tested, detailed conceptual information model with definitions and usage scenarios, mapped to both process and system architectures. This book is recommended for practitioners and managers engaged in IT support in large companies, particularly those who are information architects, enterprise architects, senior software engineers, program/project managers, and IT managers/directors.

""A Shoemaker's Story" is a brilliant book that fully conveys the richness of historical meaning common photographs can bring to light in the hands of a skillful interpreter. Anthony Lee's tale of multiple encounters among Yankee townspeople and factory owners, Chinese and French Canadian migrant laborers, and itinerant and studio photographers in North Adams, Massachusetts, is full of insight into the confluence of United States labor history, ethnic studies, and visual culture. Beautifully written as well, it will be required, desired, and inspired reading for anyone's list."--Laura Wexler, Yale University "Combining extraordinary archival work, an acute eye for the visual and social logic of photographs, and knowledge of the experiential history of their subjects, Anthony Lee offers a riveting account of the complex uses of nineteenth-century photography. In his readings, the power of images becomes a matter of complex cultural transactions and negotiations, as images themselves are viewed as critical objects for histories of labor, economic life, racial community, and self-representation. This groundbreaking study will influence scholarship for a considerable time to come."--Sara Blair, author of "Harlem Crossroads" "This book is a pleasure. Lee weaves together the many stories that run through these extraordinary photographs with exemplary deftness. Having dug deep in the archives, he cogently reconstructs the social dynamics of a forgotten community and a fascinating historical moment. His vivid tale should appeal to scholars and general readers alike."--Robin Kelsey, Harvard University "Wonderfully innovative and original. Anthony Lee offers a fascinating story that weaves together the history of manufacturing, labor, immigration, and photography. The photograph here becomes a new kind of historical evidence to be mined and untangled, a constellation of competing forces and desires. Beautifully written in remarkably lucid, playful prose. A real pleasure to read."--Shawn Michelle Smith, School of the Art Institute of Chicago "Through his reading of a single photograph taken of Chinese strikebreakers acquired to work in a shoe factory, Lee leads us on a fascinating exploration of the historical circumstances and social relations that gave rise to that photograph. The book shows an exemplary ambition in its methodological attempts to bring together close reading of visual texts, historical analysis, and archival research. An unflaggingly pleasurable read."--Gary Y. Okihiro, Columbia University

A Cobbler's Tale is an adventure story about Pincus Potasznik, a second-generation Jewish cobbler, born in a small shtetl in the province of Galicia, part of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire. In 1910, at the historic height of the massive Eastern European immigration wave to the New World, Pincus decides to leave behind his pregnant wife, and three small children, in order to seek a new life for his family in the burgeoning Lower East Side of Manhattan. On his traumatic voyage across the Atlantic Ocean on the SS Amerika steamship, Pincus meets Jakob Adler, a young man running from an accidental murder of a notorious crime boss in Warsaw. The story also explores the challenges of pregnant Clara Potasznik as she does her best to protect her family, while the bloodiest battles of World War I explode within miles of her family home, a small village called Krzywcza. Moshe, the young son of Pincus and Clara Potasznik, discovers his divine ability to foretell dire events, and to offer real comfort those in pain, taking the reader into the wisdom and mystery surrounding the ancient Jewish mysticism, known as Kabbalah. A Cobbler's Tale is a story of a family's survival against tremendous odds.
