commerce is the process of buying and selling or exchanging of products, services, and information via computer networks including the Internet. Turban, Lee, King and Chung (2000)


Words from Jack Welch

“Digitizing a company does more than just create unlimited business opportunities; it puts a small company soul into that big company body and gives it the transparency, excitement and buzz of a start-up. It is truly the elixir for GE and others who relish excitement and change. Ebusiness is the final nail in the coffin for bureaucracy at GE.”

B2B Predicted Growth
 From

1999 – 2004:


per Gartner Group
 In

1997 - $10 billion of B2B transactions were conducted over the internet

B2B EC Predicted Percent of Revenue for 2003
Industry Computing, electronics Motor vehicles Petrochemicals Utilities Paper/office products Shipping/warehousing Food/agriculture Percent in 2003 39.3% 14.7% 13.5% 25.8% 5.6% 17.2% 3.0%

Most bluntly

B2B EC is predicted to grow to $1,330.9 billion by 2003  This means B2B EC grows from .2% of B2B in 1997 to 9.4% of B2B in 2003

Assessment: They‟re probably being very conservative!!!


Experiences with B2C EC (briefly…)


Amazon – A Case Study
July 1995  Sold $15.7 million in 1996  Sales of $600 million in 1998, monthly growth of 34 percent  10 million titles in catalog  Inventories only a few thousand highselling titles (rest handled through Ingram)

 Founded

Amazon Case – results
     

42 turns at Amazon versus 2.1 at Barnes & Noble brick and mortar stores (1996) Selling 14.2 percent cheaper than brick and mortar stores Customer has search capability, information, customized hot lists, … Financials – continue to be problematic! Can anybody make serious money with this business model? Interesting part – the relationship with Ingram Puzzle – providing and creating value without CAPTURING VALUE!


Experiences with B2B EC


What‟s B2B EC for?

Electronic marketing (CISCO, Intel)  Procurement Management (GE TPN)  Electronic intermediaries (Boeing)  Just-in-time delivery (FedEx)  EDI  Intranet  Extranet  Integration with back-end information systems

Intel – A Case Study



Products: microprocessors, motherboards, imbedded chips, chipsets and flash memory EC site sales went to $1 billion per month in first month in operation in 1998 Site  Self-service extranet  Procurement and customer support  Reaches several hundred small/midsize business customers worldwide  Orders entered manually using browsers  Order tracking  Product documentation, structured help Target – Companies not connected to Intel via EDI


Intel Case Study - results
1999 cost savings – eliminated 45,000 faxes per quarter to Taiwan alone  Intermediaries indicate they are not threatened by Intel‟s EC initiatives

“I don‟t think Intel‟s strategy is to touch 100,000 customers a day. Somebody has to stock and sell by ones and twos. Someone has to pull them and pack them the way the customer asks for them.” Earle Zucht Senior VP, Wyle Electronics

Word from Lou Gerstner of IBM
“E-business is all about cycle time, speed, globalization, enhanced productivity, reaching new customers and sharing knowledge across institutions for competitive advantage.”


Boeing Corporation
1997 – Boeing Corporation reported a 20% savings after posting a request for proposal for manufacturing a subsystem on the Internet  Vendor from Hungary won the bid, delivered more cheaply, and delivered quickly

GE/ Ford, Daimler Chrysler February announcement of online exchange for automotive parts and supplies


Trends per WSJ
The B-to-B shakeout has begun, and it isn't pretty. Last year, analysts predicted there would be as many as 10,000 sites by now -- ranging from real-world suppliers that offer their goods online to Internet start-ups that don't actually sell anything, just provide venues where buyers can hook up with sellers. But a recent study by Deloitte Consulting LP, a New York-based unit of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, puts the number of B-to-B sites at a much more humble 1,488 -- and falling. Dozens of start-ups have already shut down, and analysts say that by this time next year hundreds more will have joined them. The sites faring the best are traditional suppliers that have moved online.
Wall Street Journal report, October 23, 2000

A question . . .
 Can

the efficiency of capital markets be created in markets for almost everything? Gates‟ notion of frictionless capitalism

 Bill


Benefits of EC
capital outlay  Reducing cost of transactions  Highly targeted marketing  Pull-type processing enabling customization (Dell)  Cycle time reduction  Enables reengineering projects

 Minimal

Current limitations of EC

Outstanding security and reliability issues  Integration with ERP software can be difficult  Uneven existence of standards  Shortage of bandwidth  Pure in-house development of EC is difficult and can be costly  24x7 availability and expectations can be brutal!


 Can  Will

ERP keep up with EC?
a tortoise try to dance with a roadrunner?

 Can

B2B EC work to create efficient markets at micro level, or keiretsu?  Channel conflict?

Still More Wisdom from Jack Welch
“One cannot be tentative about this. Excuses like „channel conflict‟ or „marketing and sales aren‟t ready‟ cannot be allowed. Delay and you risk being cut out of your own market, perhaps not by traditional competitors, but by companies you never heard of 24 months ago.”
Jack Welch, July 2000, Forbes Magazine
