Main Description
Electronic commerce is increasingly central to business strategy, but successfully planning and implementing E-commerce requires a broad, multidisciplinary understanding of technology, culture, law, and business processes. This book offers a concise overview of all the important issues surrounding E-commerce -- including its impact on society and culture. It covers the core technologies surrounding E-commerce, including network protocols, security mechanisms, and electronic storage and retrieval of multimedia and text. It also reviews key business issues, including advertising, marketing, procurement, purchasing, billing, payment, and supply chain management. Next, it covers core legal issues, including information privacy, access and control. The book contains a comprehensive discussion of both current research in E-commerce and future challenges, presenting the subject in the broadest socioeconomic and cultural contexts.
Main Description
The information market place is on the horizon. However, it is unlikely that the basic functions of commerce will change appreciably, even as the coming electronic revolution dramatically changes the forms of commerce. Thus, it is of fundamental importance to carefully consider existing commercial activities in designing and proposing new infrastructures for the future.This volume presents, in eight chapters contributed by leading experts from industry, academia and government, an unique overview of current research issues and applications in the evolving area of electronic commerce; it is based on a workshop held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland in December 1994.
