Canzer's comprehensive approach to e-business centers on four key areas of strategic planning: technology, management, marketing, and finance. In clear contrast to other texts that overlook both management and finance, Canzer offers a concise introduction ideal for e-business courses or principles of marketing and management courses. He offers a balanced presentation of theory and strategy with examples that illustrate how organizations implement plans in the real business world. E-Business accommodates interactive learning opportunities at the textbook web site, including online assignments such as cases and group projects from the author's own class (added each semester).
- The text focuses on what students need to know about developing, managing, and maintaining a successful e-business instead of the technical logistics of setting up a site.
- Examples and cases that involve today's most notable e-businessessuch as IBM, Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, Siebel, and PeopleSoftgive students the most current perspective on the field available.
- An online journal and an index of relevant web resources offer dynamic reinforcement of concepts outlined in the text.
