The E-Business Navigator: Implementing a Classification Scheme for the E-Domain
The paper describes research activity for the development of the "e-business navigator" – a graphical representation of a classification scheme for the e-business domain. The need for a common understanding of e-business terms evolved in the publicly funded project "eXperience" where case studies were to be classified according to a common standard. The authors of this paper developed a common classification scheme in order to structure relevant knowledge and make it publicly available for all interested researchers and practitioners. One of the objectives was the creation of a common language among all parties involved. A network project of European perspective is in the making and will advance the discussion about the common e-language and e-understanding. Above all, this network will work with the classification scheme and validate its use and implementation in the time to come.
