Abstract

The rapidly accelerating rate of change in today’s information-based business environments coupled with increased global competition, makes corporations face new challenges in bringing their products and services to the market. Modern enterprises in medicine, manufacturing, banking, education, environmental management and so on are increasingly dependent on the continuous flow of information for virtually every aspect of their operations. This results in an increasing demand for streamlining of operations, and an efficient, unified access to information resources that are distributed throughout a local or worldwide network. Information agent technology is one of the key technologies for this purpose.
