From the Inside Flap:

The Internet is the most important business tool of the new century. In the business-to-business (B2B) world, the Internet is enabling the formation of extended enterprises operating within value networks. Vendors and suppliers within these " wired" entities are able to communicate instantaneously with each other and with customers far more easily, cheaply, and quickly than ever before. In their rush to evolve as e-businesses, many traditional companies hasten to update existing business processes while losing sight of an important fact: E-business simply will not work in the absence of sound business infrastructures based on well-functioning enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems.

While new front-end technologies are appearing at a dizzying pace, ERP software remains the most efficient and effective solution for managers who need to plan and control money, manufacturing operations, inventory, and people- the elements and processes that comprise the so-called back-end of the organization. The critical question for such managers is:

How do I combine my existing ERP systems with the most up-to-date Web-based technologies to create one all-encompassing e-business strategy designed to:

  • Add greater value to customers
  • Create tightly coupled relationships with trading partners
  • Open the door to new strategic opportunities

In E-Business and ERP: Transforming the Enterprise, the authors answer this question by providing a road map to achieving the ideal combination of speed, business capability, technical know-how, and execution as companies attempt to get the most out of current investments while grappling with the multiple challenges of thee-business environment. Addressing the needs of the full range of companies- from Internet start-ups grabbing headlines even as they struggle to execute effective business processes, to companies with long track records of success in keeping pace with technological innovations- E-Business and ERP: Transforming the Enterprise presents:

  • E-business procedures to help companies link their existing ERP systems with the information capabilities of their customers
  • A new approach to valuing ERP and e-business investments
  • A guide to achieving the right balance among technology, processes, and people while undertaking a major e-business effort
  • A framework for understanding e-business opportunities within the context of a traditional enterprise and its infrastructure
  • In-depth analysis of how the Internet impacts supply chain management, customer relationship management (CRM), and shared services
  • A look into the future of ERP and Web-based technologies

The authors also offer a new model- an ERP/E-Business Matrix that executives and managers can use to assess their company' s current position as an e-business- including evaluating relevant risks and opportunities; determining a desired destination; and developing a plan for getting there successfully.Perhaps for the first time, this invaluable tool lays out all the options, making an informed decision about a company' s future e-business direction not only possible, but easier than ever before.

Most today' s global enterprises have invested heavily in current infrastructures, and, in many cases, this investment has paid off handsomely.However, tomorrow' s most successfulcompanies will leverage that investment by implementing Web-based technologies in tandem with sound ERP-based solutions. Let E-Business and ERP: Transforming the Enterprise show you the processes, techniques, and strategies you need to maximize your organization' s ERP investment while transforming it into an e-nabled powerhouse.
