Abstract (by Anders Tell):    (DW9)

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.    (DWA)

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.    (DWB)
