e-Business in Supply Chain Management
E-business is concerned with the use of the Internet to link companies with their suppliers, customers and other trading partners. As a business concept, it has evolved significantly since its introduction in the 1990's in parallel with the rapid rate of development of Information Technology (IT) during this period. Supply Chain Management (SCM) is fundamentally concerned with integration of activities both with and between organizations. IT plays a crucial role in SCM as a key enabler of Supply Chain Integration (SCI).
