COIT20250 - E-Business Systems

General Information

Unit Synopsis

The business world has witnessed the digital revolution at the beginning of the 1990s. Since then, significant business growth has been driven by the Internet; and organisations without e-commerce (electronic commerce) strategies will lose the chance to be competitive in this dynamic digital marketplace environment. Therefore, companies need to interact with their suppliers, customers and partners in an electronic medium such as online, mobile or social platforms. The objective of this unit is to provide you with an in-depth understanding and knowledge of using e-commerce from day to day business operations to strategic level. The unit will help you obtain a high level understanding of the ICT infrastructure supporting e-commerce as well as knowledge of different e-commerce models and systems. You will also have an opportunity to develop a small-scale e-commerce prototype website using existing and evolving tools and technologies.
