As we enter the third millennium, we are experiencing profound changes to our daily lives, none of which are more significant than the digital revolution. The most prominent change is in how businesses use information systems to perform their basic functions such as buying and selling, liaison with customers and collaborating with their trading partners. The unit is not technical and instead aims to provide an understanding of how modern business organisations use information systems, specifically, inter-organisational systems (IOS) to facilitate electronic trading between trading partners. Overall, the unit examines the role of IOS especially supply chain management and electronic procurement in the modern business world. Further, it looks at essential information infrastructure that is needed to implement IOS. Finally, we identify and review the key managerial decisions required by organisations moving to electronic business platforms together with legal and social issues such as security, ethics and privacy that may arise as a consequence.
