It’s tough to pick up a magazine or turn on the television these days without someone telling you that you must turn your company into an e-company in order to survive. But once you get past these exhortations to "embrace change," it’s surprisingly hard to find any practical advice on how to integrate e-commerce into your company’s business plan. Therein lies the value of Faisal Hoque’s e-Enterprise, which disposes of generalities and plunges headlong into an explanation of online business models, applications, architecture and tools. For the technologically challenged, this book will go down like castor oil.
