I authored the book HP ATP Server Solutions, published in May 2014 by HP Press. The book is based on a training course I wrote called "Building HP Server Solutions." I also wrote certification exams, labs, and case studies for HP. I have also written and edited web content, online training courses, industry reports, and white papers for several of the world's top IT companies, including Sun Microsystems, Gartner, PeopleSoft, and Cisco.
