E-Business Management: Integration of Web Technologies with Business Models contains a collection of articles by leading information systems researchers on important topics related to the development of e-business. The goal is to enhance the understanding of the state of the art in e-business, including the most current and forward-looking research. The book emphasizes both business practices and academic research made possible by the recent rapid advances in the applications of e-business technology. The book should help graduate students, researchers, and practitioners understand major e-business developments, how they will transform businesses, and the strategic implications to be drawn.
Recent economic, political, and technological forces are changing the landscape of electronic business and electronic commerce. Although great strides have been made over the past in understanding, researching and advancing e-business, rarely have we witnessed its use so profound and yet its limitations so pronounced, than what has been on global public display for the past 18 months. As a result, new e-commerce strategies and techniques are emerging, collaborative value creation is essential and e-business models are being refined and developed, with special attention towards IS in financial markets, health care and related institutions. It is for these reasons (and many more) that we are so particularly excited and grateful for the collection of papers included in this Value Creation in e-Business Management LNBIP volume number 36. The papers selected in this volume address these emerging e-business issues and are organized into four research lines: Business Models for the Digital Economy, Electronic and Mobile Commerce Behavioral and Global Issues, IS in Financial M- kets and Institutions, Web 2. 0 and E-Commerce and Collaborative Value Creation. The first group, Business Models for the Digital Economy, provides a closer exami- tion of business models from a rich mixture of segments in the IT industry. They - clude Hoyer and Stanoevska-Slabeva’s business model types for enterprise mashup intermediaries, Riehle’s ‘commercial’ open source business model, Chen’s interesting comparison between i-Phone versus Kindles in electronic book sales, and Lyons and coauthors business models in emerging online services.
E-Business covers a broad spectrum of businesses based on the Internet, including e-commerce, e-healthcare, e-government and e tailing. While substantial attention is being given to the planning and development of e-business applications, the efficiency and effectiveness of e-business systems will largely depend on management solutions. These management solutions demand a good grasp of both the technical and business perspectives of an e-business service. There have been many books on the Internet based on e-commerce, Internet protocols, distributed components etc. However, none of these books address the problem of managing e business as a set of networked services. They do not link enterprise management with network and systems management. This book provides an overview of the emerging techniques for IT service management from a business perspective with case studies from telecommunication and healthcare sectors. It integrates the business perspective with relevant technical standards, such as SNMP, WBEM and DMI. This book presents some concepts and methodologies that enable the development of effective and efficient management systems for networked services. The book is intended to familiarize practicing managers, engineers, and graduate level students with networked service management concepts, architectures and methodologies with reference to evolving standards. It should be useful in a number of disciplines, such as business management, information systems, computers and networking, and telecommunications. Appendix 2 is based on TeleManagement (TM) Forum's documents on TOM (GB921,GB910 and GB908). While this appendix has explained the basic management concept of an e-telco, TMForum now recommends the use of eTOM as explained in www.tmforum.com. An overview of eTOM is available in the report The TeleManagement Forum's enhanced Telecom Operations Map (eTOM) by Michael Kelly appearing in the Journal of Network and Systems Management in March 2003.
This book contains selected papers from the e-Commerce and e-Business (SIGeBIZ) track at the 16th Americas Conference on Information Systems, AMCIS 2010, held in Lima, Peru, August 12-15, 2010. The 13 papers presented here were selected from 48 submissions and have been organized into three research lines: e-business models and information systems in financial markets, e-commerce use and design, and e-business research issues and methods.

An Introduction to e-Business provides the contemporary knowledge of the key issues affecting the modern e-business environment and links theory and practice of management strategies relating to e-business. This book brings together the most cogent themes for an introduction to e-business and constitutes a valuable contribution to formalising common themes for teaching the subject in higher education. It brings together theoretical perspectives based on academic research and the application of e-business strategies. These concepts are further explored in the six case studies that follow the set chapters. This new textbook integrates the main themes to provide a complete picture of the key elements relevant to an introductory text in e-business. To fully appreciate the e-business environment it is necessary to understand the links between the different disciplines that come together to form that environment. * Integrates business, management, strategic management, technology, marketing and economics within the context of e- business * Provides practical insight by including a selection of in depth case studies on high profile companies, such as Amazon.com, e-Bay and Google * Text is supported by web material supplying further case study material, Q&As and additional sources of information
