This course covers the concepts of B2B Marketplace design considerations, strategies and models. The emphasis of the course is on the various B2B models such as Vertical and Horizontal Marketplaces, Exchanges, Auctions, and JIT delivery. The strategies in Supply Chain Management (eSCM) and the Customer Relationship Management (eCRM) are examined. The integration of Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, and the use of Intranets and Extranets in eCommerce deployment are also discussed. The new field of Mobile Commerce (mCommerce) is investigated. Students are exposed to practical implementations and case studies of the various B2B models and architectures currently deployed in eCommerce applications.
