*The maturity of business ontologies and rate of adoption - examples
and challenges from the domain of eCommerce and electronic business
by Anders W. Tell    (05)

*Abstract*:    (06)

During the last few years a relatively large number of technologies
for eCommerce and business integration has been suggested, developed
and to a degree standardised. However most commercial trade
transaction are still today executed with little to no electronic
means, i.e. paper based. A key question must be raised how much
"business" such technologies really include? Concerns are also being
raised with regards to proposed solutions being overly complex,
technological and costly, such as PKI, and that simpler pragmatic
means may actually be a faster road to an efficient end.    (07)

The session focus on an elaboration on selected key business and legal
aspects that may differentiate "business technologies" from
"technologies that support business". This from the viewpoint and
assumption that business mean changes in social, business, economical
and legal relations.    (08)
