Synopsis: This unit deals with the B2B quadrant of the e-commerce matrix. All key aspects of the B2B landscape will be examined through the lens of specific implementations to ensure the acquisition of a practical and marketable skill set. Laboratories will allow students access to an industrial strength ERP (SAP R/3) and B2B platform. Following a discussion of e-Procurement the complex but potentially immensely rewarding world of collaborative Commerce via B2B Exchanges (Marketplaces and eHUbs) are examined.
