During the past two decades, advances in computer technologies combined with telecommunication technologies have lead to the development of the Internet and its most popular application, the World Wide Web (WWW). During the past decade, many firms have benefited from the technologies of the Web, better known as Web-Enabled Technologies. Through the use of Web-enabled technologies, organizations have managed to reach customers and suppliers throughout the world in ways that in the past would have been impossible. Web-enabled technologies have allowed firms of all sizes and types to find new strategic opportunities or to improve their strategic posture through the use of these new technologies. At the same time, organizations have begun utilizing Web-enabled technologies in support of internal organizational functions, particularly in the area of communications and information dissemination related activities.
Like many other new technologies, Web-enabled technologies have offered organizations many opportunities and trends as well as controversies and challenges. The primary focus of this book is to provide up-to-date research and practical findings related to Web-enabled technologies and their applications and managerial issues in modern organizations. The contributed chapters by many international researchers and managers in this book include coverage of many timely and important issues related to the overall management of Web-enabled technologies in organizations. The coverage provided in this book ranges from development issues of Web-enabled technology applications to the issue of training and viability of these technologies.
I hope the diverse coverage of issues provided in the book will contribute to the existing literature and knowledge of Web-enabled technology management in organizations. This book should be useful to both information technology managers and researchers in obtaining a greater understanding of the issues surrounding these technologies. It is my expectation that this book and its coverage will assist organizations in managing ways of utilization and management of Web-enabled technologies in modern organizations.From the Back Cover:
