2. Internet: Making the Business Case

Gordon Howell, Internet Business Services, Scotland

In their year-end reports, both Newsweek and the US News and World Report rated the Internet as one of the top 10 developments in 1994. The UK Economist suggested that the Internet will be an "indispensible tool" for businesses in the late 90s.

The Internet "gold rush" is on, but where are you likely to strike "pay dirt"? Is it really possible for conventional, non-technical businesses to take advantage of the new electronic media to enhance their business? What are the emerging business "conventions" in use on the Internet?

This tutorial looks at how conventional business processes can be enhanced by the Internet, and considers how to develop new lines of business specifically to exploit the medium. Examples in areas such as customer services, electronic publishing and direct marketing (shopping for users) will be presented.
