B2B APPLICATION INTEGRATION - E BUSINESS ENABLE YOUR ENTERPRISE

Business as usual? Does anyone remember what that phrase even means anymore? About the only thing certain about "business as usual" is that it is inadequate to survive in the new, technology-driven business environment. It just doesn't get the job done anymore. If IT organizations fail to transform and enable themselves to compete in the new Internet economy, they will find themselves among the "left behinds," wondering what in the world hit them. Gartner Group has proclaimed that "e-commerce applications and technology have been elevated to 'core competency' status, and their success or failure will determine an enterprise's viability." It is a whole new business world out there. It is dynamic and fluid. It is relentless. And, it is dangerous. The thing that makes this new world so challenging to IT organizations is that the Internet e-Business model no longer exists solely in a technology domain. The new e-Business model is now being shaped and driven by the business units; technology has been reduced to an enabling role. The importance of the Internet is mushrooming before our eyes. Forrester Research forecasts that the e-Business market will reach $1.3 trillion in only three more years. According to the IDC, businesses will spend $10 billion over the next five years to create the infrastructure that will support this e-Business market. In his research, Forrester found that almost half of the Fortune 500 executives surveyed had already opened up three or more corporate data systems to their business partners--and that 60% expected that number to grow threefold or more by 2001. Gartner predicts that by year-end 2002, more than 50percent of large enterprises will have implemented at least one large-scale, extended-enterprise application to support multiple trading partners or Web-based external access to applications. Woe be to the executive who tarries!
