Deploying and Implementing an E-Business Strategy
E-business has changed the relationship between IT and the business, creating the need for new strategies and causing the transfer of billions of dollars in market and venture capital. But implementing an e-business strategy involves more than just setting up a Web site. It requires integrating systems, processes, and operations from front to back. What are the best practices for deploying an e-business strategy? How do you know when you have a winner? We'll discuss these questions and more in next month's issue of the Cutter IT Journal.

In the April 2001 issue of the Cutter IT Journal, we discuss project management from an international perspective and discover what really is different about multicultural projects.
