E-Commerce Framework
E-Commerce applications will be built on the existing technology infrastructure – a myriad of computers, communication networks, and communication software forming the nascent Information Superhighway. The technology infrastructure of the Internet is both an enabler and a driver of change. An infrastructure is defined as “the foundation of a system.” In this case, the technological foundation of the Internet, simply put, enables the running of the e-commerce enterprises. The hardware backbone of computers, routers, servers, fiber optics, cables, modems, and other network technologies provides half of the technology equation. The other half includes the soft-ware and communications standards that run on top of the hardware, including the core protocols for the Web. Understanding technology infrastructure and therefore understanding what is and is not achievable is essential to formulating a company’s vision and strategy.

e-commerce framework

The framework for e-Commerce consists of three parts;

  1. The first part consists of a variety of electronic commerce applications including both inter- and intra-organizational and electronic market examples such as Supply Chain Management, Video-on-Demand, Procurement and purchasing, On-line marketing and advertising, Home shopping etc.
  2. The second part of the building blocks of the infrastructure consists of:
    • Common business services, for facilitating the buying and selling process.
    • Messaging and information distribution, as a means of sending and retrieving information ( example-EDI, e-mail, P2P file transfer)
    • Multi-media content and network publishing, for creating a product and a means to communicate about it.
    • Information Superhighway infrastructure consisting of telecommunication, cable operator, ISPs , Wireless technologies and Internet.
  3. The third part consists of the public policy and technical standards necessary to support the applications and the infrastructure.
    • Public policies govern issues like universal access, privacy, and information pricing. The public policy infrastructure affects not only the specific business but also direct and indirect competitors. It should take into consideration of:
      • Cost of accessing information
      • Regulation to protect consumers from fraud and protect their right to privacy.
      • Policies of global information traffic to detect information pirating and obscene sites.
    • Technical Standards governs issues like technology for communication and as well as for Internet
