Developing E-Business Standards


Apart from studying the empirical diffusion of existing e-business standards on an industry and a country level, the two following e-business application models contribute to possible future research directions aimed at solving problems occurring on the way to a network economy. While the need for interorganizational systems is widely agreed in the literature to be necessary in order to benefit from communication standards (Chau et al. 2001; Peffers et al. 1998), the following questions remain unanswered:
  • how standardization settings should be designed (Beck et al. 2003d; Damsgaard et al. 2001; Gaynor et al. 2001),

  • how the business process should be redesigned (Clark et al. 2000; Peffers et al. 1998) accompanied by the implementation of standards,

  • and which components and features of an interorganizational system are the core benefit drivers and how can they be created by convincing SMEs, e.g., to adopt a standard.
