E-Business - Introduction

Overview

E-business is everywhere. Most newspapers and magazines carry articles about the hottest new idea for conducting commerce over the Internet. But what is the truth behind the e-business world? How does it operate? How and why does a business go on-line?

As e-commerce increasingly creeps into all facets of everyday life we need to understand how e-business evolved, the technologies and business models that drive it, the threat it poses to traditional business models, and how it is likely to grow in the future. In this course  we aim to provide an answer to these questions and to develop a fuller understanding of e-business opportunities.

Modules

An historical background to the technologies and business models that have arisen over the past several decades to arrive at the e-business infrastructure that we have today.
 
Lesson 2: DEFINING E-BUSINESS

A detailed definition of e-business, in terms of how transactions are conducted.
 
Lesson 3: E-BUSINESS VERSUS TRADITIONAL BUSINESS MODELS

How existing businesses are being threatened by electronic transactions and the e-business models that have grown up around them.
 
Lesson 4: DRIVERS FOR CHANGE

The drivers for organisations to consider embracing e-business, and taking a high-level view of where e-business concepts can be applied within business processes.
 
Lesson 5: LOOKING TO THE FUTURE

A brief look at the future of e-business in terms of new business models, the role of new technologies and the changing global economic situation.
