Praise for Value Creation

"Businesses know a lot more about IT today, and they demand the IT organization know more about business.
This book provides answers to the provocative question of how the CIO can become a true partner to the
executives who run the business."

—Rob Simplot
President and CEO, RCG Global Services

"This book brings a fresh insight and understanding of the complex relationships between business success and
technological advances. This framework provides a great way to use new and current technology and to integrate
with the processes and culture of the company."

—Bill Seibel
CEO, Mobiquity

"Excellent insight! This book, based on a great deal of practical experience, boils down a very complex topic into an understandable and common sense approach. In addition to a holistic approach to capture how IT enables businesses, Bhatia has highlighted the human element that is key to running a business and bringing all these concepts in perfect harmony."

—Mark Sohl
COO, Generation Mortgage

"Today’s CIO must be an intrinsic part of the business to really enable strategies, and this book provides a great structure
to think of both effectiveness and efficiency. It will help any business executive to focus the IT debate on creating
business value and ultimately shift the thinking from ‘utility’ to ‘value creation.'"

—Sandra Hofmann
CIO-in-Residence, Advanced Technology Development Center

"An excellent work for putting together the Information Technology value proposition in a present day context.
A must-read for all executives and business people to understand how to leverage IT and knit it into the fabric
of their business processes properly."

—Mark Perlstein
President and CEO, DatAvail

"I recommend Value Creation to any executive in the public or private sector to see how they can
operationalize their strategies for revenue growth or operation excellence. A practical guide and
an eye-opener to viewing your processes and systems."

—Cindy Tierney
CIO, Beazer Homes

"If you are in a business and wonder how technology is changing the way the work is done and why, read this book.
This captures business process thinking and how technologies prevalent today affect business results."

—Peter Gordon
SVP, Enterprise Strategy, Fidelity National Information Services

"The business has to acknowledge that IT is a fundamental enabler to the business growth strategy. In order
to do so, there must be an acceptance not only of IT growth opportunities, but of the amount of
‘maintenance’ investments. Bhatia captures this in a succinct and crisp fashion in his book.
The crux is to see how to balance investments and risks to increase shareholder value."

—Vicki Hamilton
SVP, Enterprise Digital Operations, Turner Broadcasting

"'IT happens’, and we all need to be cognizant of it and understand the pros and cons of thinking through
all of it up-front. Bhatia has done an excellent job of educating the reader, IT executive, IT user, hiring manage
of IT resources in corporations, etc. by leveling the playing field in clarifying the true value to business.
This book is a great investment and I encourage the audience to give it serious consideration, as it
would directly impact their and their organization’s success in the second decade of this millennium."

—Dr. Shree Nanguneri
President and CEO, MGBS, Inc.
