The promise of the Internet fulfilled
In this groundbreaking book, the experts at PricewaterhouseCoopers share their vision and astonishing track record for a new Internet model: "B-to-E," business-to-employee, or more appropriately, business-to-everything. In the B-to-E model, employees of large corporations can conduct all professional and personal business through a single corporate web portal. The result is not only a more integrated, dynamic corporate community, but also huge potential cost savings maximizing technology already in place. Illuminating case studies of Hewlett Packard, Ford Motor Company, and others demonstrate that the future of the Internet is as first promised: unified enterprises, empowered individuals, new horizons for both.
Robin Lissack is a partner in PricewaterhouseCoopers and an expert in B-to-E issues. George Bailey is the leader of PricewaterhouseCoopers' B-to-E business in the western United States.
