About the report

The Evolution of Web Commerce

Information technology (IT) in general and application development (AD) in particular are evolving at a rapid pace. While basic client/server (C/S) computing was the object of everyone's attention only a short while ago, it has now evolved into a new form -- Web- enabled, platform-independent, network-focused information processing -- in short, Web commerce.

CTR's new Web Commerce: Developing and Implementing Effective Business Solutions report provides the strategic information and methodology to create Web applications that will allow an organization to achieve its most effective level of Web commerce. The report discusses the advantages of implementing Web commerce and examines the numerous components that must be considered in Web AD, including tool support, architectural models, development techniques, and security. The report also analyzes the most valuable Web application today - E-commerce.

Web Commerce Tools

Web development encompasses numerous technologies and tools for successful system operation. The report reviews the elements that drive the Internet/Web phenomenon, including hypertext transport protocol (HTTP), languages such as Java and Perl, and support structures such as the distributed component object model (DCOM) and the common object request broker architecture (CORBA).

While C/S solutions prevail and continue to increase, the emergence of the net-enabled, Web-centric, platform-independent environment associated with the Web has again changed the AD landscape. CTR's Web Commerce: Developing and Implementing Effective Business Solutions examines the basic steps in preparing for Web commerce and discusses the organizational, technological, and design issues that must be addressed.
