Electronic Markets: A State of the Art Analysis
Prof. Dr. Beat Schmid, Dr. Hans-Dieter Zimmermann
The tutorial is divided into three major parts: In the first part we introduce concepts of Electronic Markets, its historic developments, basic mechanisms, and potentials. The second part gives a state of the art overview about recent developments in the field of Electronic Markets and Electronic Commerce. The phase model of a market transaction is used as the underlying framework, discussing EC developments in the information-, negotiation-/contracting- and settlement- (logistics and payment) phase of transactions. The tutorial concludes with an outlook towards the new perspective on Business Media and the embedding of Electronic Markets in this more general concept.
