    About the session

    With the stock market reversing its meteoric rise of the last 8 years, the press is saying that e-commerce is dead. This is simply not true. However, the Internet has profoundly changed the rules of the game of business, and most companies have not figured that out yet. We're not talking about merely using the Internet to sell your products or services, we're talking about using the Internet as a catalyst to completely transform your company and the relationships with its customers, partners and employees. The archaic industrial-based functions of finance, marketing, sales, engineering and manufacturing need to disappear and resurface with morphed responsibilities more heavily focused on the newly empowered customer.

    In this session, e-commerce management expert Mitchell Levy will discuss the concept and management of the holistic Internet-enabled entity. He will cover new e-conomy thinking and the constancy of change, ways to evolve businesses around the customer and their new customer service expectations, and the continued importance of content and ongoing Internet marketing.

    More detail on this topic is available in Mitchell's new book, Thriving in the Internet Age Through E-Commerce Management (described on Information on other topics in the Electronic Commerce Management (ECM) field is provided in the courses of the ECM certificate program offered by San Jose State University.
