  • Pradeep Kumar Ray
Part of the Network and Systems Management book series (NASM)


As discussed in Chapters 5 to 7, e-business management presents many different concepts, architectures, technologies and standards. To integrate these different paradigms it is necessary to think about the interoperability of different standards and technologies. Integration and interoperability of ebusiness management may be considered with respect to the following dimensions:
  • Types of business (healthcare, telecommunications, finance etc.)

  • Functions and Process (e.g., Business, Service, Infrastructure levels)

  • Lifecycle (requirements, design, evaluation etc.)
