The E-business (R)evolution became a global bestseller due to its remarkable combination of technical and business insight into the challenges of e-business for both the short-term and the long-term. Now, Daniel Amor has thoroughly updated his book to reflect dramatic change in the e-business marketplace -- and to teach the powerful lessons that the dot-com crash has to offer. For those who are talking less about e-business, but doing more, The E-business (R)evolution, Second Edition is the single best source for both strategy and tactics. Amor covers every aspect of doing business on the Web -- today and tomorrow, B2B and B2C. He begins by providing a technical and business foundation for your e-business initiative, describing key considerations ranging from marketing to law. Next, he walks through the technology and architecture of e-business, introducing Internet-, intranet- and extranet-based applications, client software, middleware, and back-end systems. This Edition adds detailed new coverage of customer relationship management, content management, and knowledge management. Amor offers business cases that tie technology to the goals of the enterprise, and concludes with a preview of the future of e-business in light of key trends, from open source to pervasive computing.

There are many handbooks which claim to provide both guidance on formulating Internet strategies and an understanding of what does--and does not--make the Internet tick. Few live up to the expectations built up by their dust jacket, but this one comes closer than most. Marketed as a handbook for entrepreneurs and executives working on e-business plans, the book covers both technical and strategic aspects of what is for many a daunting and too often misunderstood new medium.
Making money is a key issue for many Internet newcomers, and Amor devotes space to good-practice issues like monitoring competitors as well as the more obvious topic of handling payments. Here as elsewhere he outlines the alternative approaches, explaining their pros and cons, and providing real-world usage examples, but never delving so deep as to loose the non-technical reader. It is no good having a great Web site if nobody ever visits it, and in another key section of the book Amor offers advice on marketing on the Internet. Elsewhere he covers more technical topics like handling images and using JAVA, while further chapters tackle search engines and the complex area of data security. Towards the end of the book Amor takes a look into the future, giving today's entrepreneurs an idea of how to plan their Internet presence with an eye on tomorrow.
The E-business (R)evolution is liberally peppered with references to Web sites so readers can conduct their own research and follow up interesting leads. Any non-technical or semi-technical person thinking of taking their business onto the Internet would do well to read this book. --Sandra VogelFrom the Publisher:
