Peter Fingar, author of the internationally acclaimed book, "Enterprise E-Commerce," joins forces with long time colleagues and industry veterans to go beyond e-commerce and on to the solid business fundamentals of the digital economy. The Internet is a whole new infrastructure for an entirely new way of doing business and competing. Economic transactions become frictionless as they move from "places" to "spaces." The crisp and insightful chapters make quick reads for CEOs, COOs, CTOs, CIOs, and line-of-business executives with little time for reading --distilling what management needs to be doing and thinking today to prepare themselves and their companies for the ride ahead.

Now that doing business on the Internet is reaching the mainstream, it's no longer e-business or e-commerce --it's just business and commerce. The authors take the mystery out of the deep and profound changes being ushered in by the ability to connect anyone-to-anyone or any computer-to-any-computer across the globe in real-time. The book signals the death of the e-hype and the beginning of the real work of building hyper-efficient, hyper-effective corporations that will continue to thrive in the years ahead.

The book systematically disassembles an enterprise's business processes, core competencies, and value chains; then reassembles them into dynamic customer-driven value webs and business ecosystems. Along the way, the authors explain the emerging business models of electronic marketplaces, peer-to-peer commerce, e-hubs, B2B exchanges, auctions, wireless applications, m-commerce, intelligent agent technology, B2B consortia, collaborative commerce, digital strategies, essential technologies and Web-services.
