Description

Is E-Business Helping You--Or Your Competitors?
E-business is transforming the commercial landscape and completely redefining traditional business assumptions. In an e-nabled world:
- Customers demand personalized, intimate relationships resulting in new levels of transaction simplicity and service value. Companies use the Internet to expand into new markets and grow.
- Products and services are designed for e-sales and customer segmentation. Companies package their most strategic asset--institutional knowledge--and bundle information with products and services to create new value for customers.
- Business processes seamlessly integrate with customers and business partners as companies build value networks, focus on their core competencies, and outsource non-core business components.
- Organizational structures are aligned to clarify internal governance for e-business. Process-oriented measures maximize the worth of information velocity in the value network.
- Systems and technologies utilize the Internet for most interactions between customers and business partners. Rapidly developing and maturing e-business applications make the Internet the place to do business.
- People and culture are transformed as work forces embrace the value of partnering and external relationships and employee knowledge equates to service value.
