From the Paper:

"Today's commerce and industry increased its global competitiveness through the implementation of information technologies. The availability of various supplies over demands helped leverage customer expectations, and businesses reacted to this modern trend by reengineering their processes and methodologies while reorganizing their corporate organizational structure to meet the growing needs of modern business. Whereas a person used to go to the mall to buy something, nowadays at a touch of a button, anything - or everything can be had via the Internet; thus Internet e-commerce or e-business was born."
