Definition of Commerce The exchange of goods and services for money Consists of: Buyers - these are people with money who want to purchase a good or service. Sellers - these are the people who offer goods and services to buyers. Producers - these are the people who create the products and services that sellers offer to buyers. 5 Elements of Commerce You need a Product or service to sell

You need a Place from which to sell the products You need to figure out a way to get people to come to your place. You need a way to accept orders. You also need a way to accept money. You need a way to deliver the product or service, often known as fulfillment. Sometimes customers do not like what they buy, so you need a way to accept returns. You need a customer service and technical support department to assist customers with products. 6 History of The Internet Started as a US government project in 1969.

The purpose was to create a net that can function even if one center is destroyed in a military attack. - Hub and spokes can be useless if the hub is destroyed. - Network can continue to be functional even if some nodes are destroyed, as long as information can pass through other nodes. Effective in 1971 with computers on both coasts of the US. 7 In the 1980s Personal computers or terminals were connected to a server.

The server was a mainframe, or connected to a mainframe computer. The mainframe was connected to another mainframe of the company in another location via dedicated lines. Only large companies could afford the expense and investment in equipment. 8 Today Connections across countries and continents made through dedicated fast lines. A company may have one local network (LAN) in NY, which is connected to the Internet through a Regional network. Well established in N.A., Europe and certain Asian countries

9 Computer classifications Mainframes: - term for very large computers - used to handle large amount of data or complex processes - main advantage is reliability Midrange: - medium sized, less expensive and smaller - usually a server Micro-computer: - work stations with computing capabilities - single-users systems linked to form a network 10 What is a network

Series of points or nodes interconnected by communication paths Node is a connection point for transmitting data Network can interconnect with other networks to form global networks 11 Benefits of a network Facilitates resource sharing Provides reliability Cost effective Provide a powerful medium across geographical divide

12 Geographical Distance Local area network (LAN): small area, share a single server Metropolitan area network (MAN): a wider network, can bridge several LANs Wide area network (WAN): a broader area covered, can include several MANs Internet: a network of networks that covers the entire globe 14 Internet addressing system Internet uses TCP/IP, therefore every computer on the Internet has an IP address

IP address is numerical, separated by dots Works with DNS: - com: for commercial purposes - net: for Internet Service Providers - org: for non-profit, non-commercial groups - gov: reserved for government - mil: reserved for military - int: reserved for international organizations 16 Assimilation of Technology Technology first adopted to increase efficiency doing the same tasks faster e.g. word processing instead of typing Technology next adopted to increase

effectiveness doing tasks not only faster but better e.g. spreadsheets transformed finance and accounting (as well as science and other fields) 17 Introduction to E-commerce E-Commerce, Web, Networks, Internet The evolution of new businesses The adoption of Brick and Mortar companies to the new economy Market failures and economic explanations for the new economy 18 History of E-commerce EC

23 Web Browsers Computer programs that can: - Display Web documents - Follow links - Execute other programs - Enhance applications such as real-time audio or video Netscape and Internet Explorer The Microsoft legal trouble due to the Explorer. 24 Web Servers

Computers that run server software. A server waits for request to arrive from a user. - The request is typically for a document. The server sends (serves) the document to the requesting computer. Sometimes the server allows a user to fill in information on a document, and the then transfers the information to another program or a server. 25 WWW and Internet The World Wide Web (WWW) is not the

Internet Access to the Internet doesnt mean you have e-commerce WWW works in HTTP Web pages works in HTML Web browser provide access to information on the WWW 27 What is E-commerce Distributing, buying, selling and marketing products and services over electronic systems E-business for commercial transactions Involves supply chain management, e-marketing, online marketing, EDI Uses electronic technology such as: - Internet - Extranet/Intranet

- Protocols 28 Forces Shaping the Digital Age 29 Forces Shaping the Digital Age Digitalization Connectivity & Intranets : connect people within a company. Extranets : connect a company with its suppliers, distributors, and outside partners.

Internet : connects users around the world. Internet Explosion Explosive worldwide growth forms the heart of the New Economy. Increasing numbers of users each month. Companies must adopt Internet technology or risk being left behind. 30 Definitions Internet:

As a result, some click-only companies have failed. 32 Forces Shaping the Digital Age Customization and Customerization: With customization, the company custom designs the market offering for the customer. With customerization, the customer designs the market offering and the company makes it. 33

E-commerce as the Networked Economy Create value largely through gathering, synthesizing and distribution of information Formulate strategies that make management of the enterprise and technology convergent Compete in real time rather than in cycle time Operate in a world characterized by low barriers to entry, near-zero variable costs of operation and shifting competition Organize resources around the demand side rather than supply side Manage better relationships with customers through technology 34 E-commerce Today The

Internet is the perfect vehicle for ecommerce because of its open standards and structure. No other methodology or technology has proven to work as well as the Internet for distributing information and bringing people together. Its cheap and relatively easy to use it as a medium for connecting customers, suppliers, and employees of a firm. No other mechanism has been created that allow organizations to reach out to anyone and everyone like the Internet. 35 E-commerce Today The Internet allows big businesses to act like small ones and small businesses to act big.

The challenge to businesses is to make transactions not just cheaper and easier for themselves but also easier and more convenient for customers and suppliers. Its more than just posting a nice looking Web site with lots of cute animations and expecting customers and suppliers to figure it out Web-based solutions must be easier to use and more convenient than traditional methods if a company hopes to attract and keep customers. 36 Four Categories of E-Commerce Business originating from...

relationship replacement To society: less human interaction, social division, reliance on technology, wasted resources, JIT manufacturing 49 Technical limitations There is a lack of universally accepted standards for quality, security, and reliability The telecommunications bandwidth is insufficient Software development tools are still evolving There are difficulties in integrating the Internet and EC software with some existing (especially legacy) applications and databases. Special Web servers in addition to the network servers are needed (added cost). Internet accessibility is still expensive and/or

inconvenient 50 Web based technology Websites E-mail Search engines Interactive communications 51 Old Economy Firms Brick and Mortar companies need to adopt to the new economy - Create a new Internet company. - Create a new subsidiary.
