Reintermediation Strategies in Business-to-Business Electronic Commerce
Business-to-business (B2B) e-commerce has become a focal point of interest for practitioners, investors, and academics. One reason for this is the realization that many of the most financially promising e-commerce applications are to be found in the business-to-business environment. In this context, the role of channel intermediaries and value-added networks is an increasingly important area of focus. This special section of the International Journal of Electronic Commerce on B2B e-commerce intermediaries and networks evolved from papers that were initially presented in the “Internet and Digital Economy Track” of the Thirty-second Annual Hawaii International Conference on Systems Sciences (HICSS-32), held in January 1999. Three articles were selected that related to this theme, and each of them was extensively revised and improved by its authors, based on comments by the reviewers and the editors of the special section, during a nine-month review process. The resulting articles are focused on the challenges and opportunities associated with new forms of channel intermediaries and networks that enable new business process and interorganizational relationships to evolve using Internet and value-added networks. They represent research perspectives that span the globe.
