Presentation: Organizational Impact of E-Business An existing catalog company is considering a move to e-business. It already has clients and some stores. It must make some decisions about how e-business will relate to its brand and how it will manage issues around technology, security, privacy, staffing, and integration with business partners. Brand and Identity Brand refers to a name which identifies your organization. Identity refers to how your organization is perceived. When creating a new e-business, the challenge is to create a brand and identity. Organizations that have no brand or identity can be creative when starting an e-business because they have no market recognition. Existing businesses must decide whether to use their historical brand and identity or create new ones. This is a strategic decision to which there is no one right solution. Organizations must decide if they want a functional brand or a brand to which the e-business can bring its own meaning. An example of a functional name would be VeriSign, a company that issues verified electronic signatures. An example of a brand name that has no relation to what the company does is Yahoo. In House or Hosted Another decision is whether to manage the technology of e-business internally or outsource all or part of the service. If an organization has the existing technical infrastructure and staff, this may not be an issue. If it does not, the organization must decide whether it wants the technical aspect of e-business to be part of its core competency. There are many options available to host the technical side. An e- business can do this while maintaining control of the business aspects. The decision should be based on the organization’s goals and strategy. Security and Privacy An important aspect of e-business is security. Once a company opens itself up to the Internet, it is exposed to many threats from hackers, thieves, and vandals; insiders; and links to business partners. Security must be addressed from a technical, procedural, and administrative standpoint. In the extended enterprise, security is a chain that starts in your organization and reaches through all partners and participants.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
