Organizational and Technical Foundations
Two significant factors combine to drive the phenomenon of
e-Business. Competition constantly motivates companies in
their marketplaces, while rapidly developing information
technologies offer new opportunities and challenges.
For Mike Papazoglou and Pieter Ribbers, both business and
technology are integral to e-Business. They demonstrate here
how a solid understanding of business, organization, management and
technology is crucial to an understanding of what e-Business is
today and how it is going to be shaped in the future.
e-Business: Organisational and Technical Foundations focuses on
the development of e-Business between and within enterprises.
In particular it addresses how enterprises collaborate, what
coordination mechanism are necessary and how this is reflected at
the technical infrastructure level.
