|Business is increasingly being performed electronically. The use of information
technology has become the single most powerful factor in the competitive transformation of
organizations. Businesses are achieving higher performance through the skillful adoption
of these technologies. Electronic Intermediaries, Internet Banking and Global Supply Chain
Management are examples of areas where the application of information technology is
leading to significant changes in economy and society.
The panel will discuss and debate the particularities of engineering inter-organizational information systems. While computer and engineering sciences have laid the foundation for Electronic Business Engineering, these technologies are no longer simple efficiency tools that automate various types of transactions such as ordering and procurement. Many applications of Electronic Commerce technologies promise an opportunity to rethink fundamental assumptions about markets and economic efficacy.
On the one hand, the systematic design and optimization of business processes and transactions offers a large potential for the improvement of competitiveness. On the other hand, new information technologies, such as electronic intermediaries or adaptive electronic catalogs, enable completely new business models and jeopardize established ways of doing business. Expectations and behaviors of economic and social systems largely depend on current formulations and assumptions about markets, organizations and processes. When these assumptions change, existing models and theories become unreliable.
The forces that drive Electronic Commerce will require a re-examination of the framework for conducting business. Our objective will be to stimulate debate and discussion. Within the first hour the six panelists will present their views on a couple of specific questions:
The remaining half hour of the session will be organized as a discussion with the audience.
