       Business -to-Business Solutions

B2B E-Commerce Solutions encompass a broad and complex array of software,
information flow, integration, web-site management and related issues. They may
even involve the redesign of workflow within the business. The field is full of new
companies offering B2B services and hoping to capitalize on the sector’s
anticipated exponential growth. Sorting through the options for most businesses
is a formidable challenge in itself. The degree to which a firm can benefit from
participating in this e-revolution is a function of may factors including:
         Product    line complexity
         Size   of the enterprise
         In-house   "know how" and "buy-in"
         Willingnessto embrace "reengineered" changes to their fundamental
         business processes
                     Business -to-Business Solutions
                                                   2

   Perhaps the most critical aspect in choosing B2B solutions is the degree of desired automated
    integration with existing operations. Product line complexity will dictate the ultimate level of
    integration with in-house IT systems necessary to achieve the economic benefits B2B E-
    commerce can afford. In the case of a simple product line, full integration may not offer
    adequate benefits commensurate with the effort required to achieve full integration. A simple
    web based procurement system might be sufficient. On the other hand, as in the case of a
    complex product line such as the automobile, the upstream ordering of parts, supplies, etc
    requires a very tight – real-time coupling with complex internal information systems. An
    example of the size of such integration is the newly announced cooperative venture involving
    General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler-Daimler Benz to develop a joint B2B marketplace utilizing
    platforms, technologies, and software developed by Oracle and Commerce One.
        For similar reasons, the size of the firm also has a bearing on the E-Commerce solutions it
         embraces. Economies of scale come in to play and highly automated integration with in
         house systems can provide substantial benefit based on the sheer volume of transactions,
         even with a relatively simple supply chain.
               Business -to-Business Solutions
                             3
   In house "know how" and "buy-in" is vital to the success of any effort to
    implement E-Commerce solutions. In the case of complex supply chain
    businesses, this is indispensable. The risk of failure is proportional to the
    complexity of the business. Moreover, full integration in large businesses may
    encounter obstacles unrelated to technological issues. Interdepartmental
    politics, cultural inertia and other less tangible factors can make or brake such
    initiatives.
   Finally, in the case of partial or full integration with in house systems, the ideal
    solution will often not be defined in terms of "seamless patching into existing
    systems", rather it will involve rethinking business processes, particularly
    work flow, in order to fully reap the benefits this new technology offers.
   To sum up, a business wishing to benefit from playing in the B2B Internet
    marketplace has the following three options with regard to integration with
    existing IT systems.
            No Integration

            Some Integration

            Full or High Integration
      Business -to-Business Solutions
                     4
   The choice is dependent on the nature of the business, specifically its
    size and the complexity of its product line(s). These options are also
    not mutually exclusive. A business may wish to take a "low risk"
    approach and start with a simple web-hosted application and move
    on to integrate at a later time. A business can purchase E-Commerce
    enabling software and employ its own staff or utilize the services of a
    rapidly growing number of both, the companies that provide the
    software and third party customizes and integrators.
Components of B2B E-Commerce solutions

E-Commerce service providers generally offer one or more of the following
elements of E-commerce solutions:
         Trading   Portals (internet-based marketplaces)
         Software   and services
         Integration   with existing IT systems
    Business entry into the e-world is facilitated by service providers who will
    tailor their solutions to match each business’ e-commerce readiness. For
    example, a buyer can access a trading portal through their own electronic
    procurement application, or may take advantage of hosted buying
    capabilities with only a browser. A supplier can leverage real-time
    automated transaction support or can choose to utilize hosted supplier
    applications.
