Abstract

A central tenet of network based technologies is their ability to eliminate geographical, distance and time constraints that have traditionally manifest themselves as boundaries encapsulating and protecting local business institutions from the more harsh realities of global competitive forces. The convergence of information and communication technologies in the Internet is not only of technological relevance, but also holds substantial implications for business in removing traditional boundaries and barriers to business operations.
