David Linthicum

If you are building new applications on public cloud platforms, you are faced with a choice: Should you build a set of APIs bound to the new cloud application’s application services? Or should you look for another job? I’m seeing many new cloud applications that are built to fail.

The parameters are the same for both 32-bit and 64-bit versions so you can define the parameters once.
