    Reviews & endorsements

    "The e-Enterprise methodology described in this book is providing essential guidance as we develop strategy and implementation plans to transform CompUSA to an e-Enterprise. This stuff works." Honorio Padron, Executive Vice President and Chief Information Officer, CompUSA

    "The author explores the rich and rapidly evolving landscape of electronic business--a journey well worth taking." Vint Cerf, Internet Pioneer

    "Now, e-transformation is a dynamic that every company must master in order to succeed in today's network economy. With e-Enterprise, Faisal Hoque provides a clear, concise and actionable roadmap for how CEO's can rapidly deploy and continually refine the essentials of e-transformation in their business." Bert Ellis, Founder, Chairman, and CEO, iXL Enterprises

    "If you think you know the components of modern information technology for e-Applications but not business strategy, this is for you. If you think you understand business strategy but not technology components, this is also for you." Edward Brginsky, Chief Technology Officer, eSolutions, BEA Systems

    "In less than five years, business use of the Internet has moved from curious novelty to ubiquitous reality. It's no longer just about selling products on the Web, but moving entire business processes online for speed, flexibility and customer responsiveness. That's not always easy, and e-Enterprise offers a useful roadmap to help companies make that transformation." Clinton Wilder, Editor At Large, Information Week

    "No matter how sharp your vision of the future may be, success depends on being able to invent the business model, implement the technology, learn with every step, and start the cycle again. It takes a robust e-Enterprise methodology to do that." Don Tapsscott, author of The Digital Economy and Growing Up Digital.

    "Business-to-consumer Internet success stories have gotten a lot of attention lately, business-to-business successes less so. There are actually few companies that have learned to do either of these well. Hoque's operating model suggests there will be more, and soon." Bruce E. H. Barlag, Executive Vice President, Gartner Group

    "Whether you're creating a new e-business or using e-technology to add bandwidth to your existing business, this book is a must-read. Faisal Hoque provides an excellent conceptual framework and marries this with proven systems concepts employed by high-performing organizations. This is the recipe for rapid development of highly scalable e-systems that maximize return on investment. It should be required reading for e-business decision-makers and technologists alike." Ron Griffin, Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer, The Home Depot

    "Hoque describes the principles he has employed in several of his successful e-businesses, as well as lots of others in which he has helped very prominent companies get up to date on e-business applications." Atlanta Business Chronicle

    "...Hoque does present thought-provoking perspecitves about where organizations are going, and what we can do to help them get there...e-Enterprise offers a valuable summary and useful observations...Worth reading? Yes." Software Development Times
