As the New Economy begins to lose its innocence, everyone wonders what happened to the promise of electronic commerce and the Internet. But let's not be mistaken— there is a new economy out there and there has been a change in business paradigms.
Business is adapting to a new reality, evolving new attitude and business models. But the process of evolution and natural selection is a brutal one, and economic survival is tough to achieve.
Whether we think the current climate is good or bad, economic turmoil is inevitable, competition is fierce, innovation is rampant, and the stakes are high.
From the Trenches brings together the first-hand experiences of some of the best and brightest participants in the new economy. This collection of essays, from seventeen luminaries in the world of e-business, affords readers a uniquely broad and authoritative perspective on the present and future of the global digital e-conomy and the real business issues that are driving it.
From the Trenches gather the "movers and shakers" from all sectors concerned with emerging technologies: presidents of cutting-edge startups, the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, a venture capitalist, regulators and policy makers, a lawyer specializing in Internet privacy, and many others with highly specialized points of view. All share their thoughts on the present and future of electronic commerce, new media, and business on the Internet.
These business leaders offer cogent answers to critical questions on a wide range of issues, including: content distribution in an Internet world, e-business financing, legal and privacy issues, Internet marketing, reengineering businesses to improve productivity and find success in a digital environment, and much more.
The essays in From the Trenches won't, of course, teach you everything you need to know to be a victor rather than a victim in this new and rapidly evolving economy. But they will open your eyes to the inherent and somewhat chaotic diversity of an emerging economic model.About the Author:
