 Ecommerce Strategies: Technical and Business Challenges
 In this emerging age of ebusiness, the web is changing every internal and
 external activity of the new age firm.  This talk addresses both technical
 and managerial considerations, including design guidelines, security, legal
 issues, and overall managerial strategies for implementing websites that can
 achieve success in this new environment.  Electronic Commerce is growing
 dramatically-including activity such as enhanced communication and
 advertising and online direct transactions, procurement, helpdesks, and
 auctions.  Interactive web-based applications enable firms to reengineer
 their strategic business processes with sites for customer support, remote
 collaboration, and remote access to corporate services and information.  We
 will address technological challenges (such as security and payment systems)
 faced when deploying the most mission-critical applications on the web.
