    The Silicon Valley WebGuild - a Chapter of the Association of Internet Professionals

    Topic: "Mass Integration and the Emergence of Online Business Collaboration"


    Kevin Harrington, COO of Centegy Corp.


    Online collaboration between trading partners will emerge as the common thread that defines successful business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce initiatives. The first generation of online commerce centered on static catalogs and transaction engines. While this continues to serve its purpose in the consumer markets, it does not properly foster online commerce between enterprises. Instead, real-time collaboration from product design to product fulfillment will be necessary for online business commerce to achieve widespread market adoption. Additionally, there is a re-evaluation occurring regarding how enterprises conduct business online.

    This second generation of B2B e-commerce is called Online Business Collaboration. In this presentation, Harrington will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by mass integration technologies, and end user requirements for tightly coupled information systems in the extended supply chain. When: Our community events are free and open to all and will take place on Wednesday, June 13, 2001. Registration begins at 6:00 PM and the speakers will begin at 7:00 PM. RSVPs are NOT required.
