Does E-Commerce Change Automation's Role

By christopher.kelly ·
Today everything we do is getting an "E-" placed in front of it. We no longer are just a business transacting commerce; we are now an E-business conducting E-commerce. Just as we built support infrastructure in the past for our mainframe business processes. We are now being asked to build E-support infrastructure to support the processes of E-commerce. Automation is a key component of the E-support infrastructure.

E-commerce makes use of our mainframe and distributed environment. The distributed environment is much more complex due to its diversity and greater number of components. There are many more events, points of failure, dependencies and problems. IT cannot hire enough people to keep up with the ever-increasing demands, so it must leverage existing and new technologies in ways to empower associates.

Does E-Commerce Change Automation Roles and Tools? I need help and input from automation professionals on these questions:

1) What is the role of Automation group in E-Commerce? Is it the same as today or different?
2) What are the roles of other areas (Network, Operations, Development, Technical Services) in E-Commerce Automation? Are they the same as today or different?
3) What tools are being used to automateE-Commerce processes? Are they the same as today or different?
4) What tasks need to be performed for every automation or E-Automation project? Are they the same as today or different?
