Ki Ho Kim

What is e-Business System?

The conducting of business using the Internet, other networks and information technologies, not just the buying and selling of goods but also servicing customers, collaborating with business partners, conducting e-learning and processing electronic transactions. 1. E-tailing, or virtual storefronts on Web sites. 1. Online business-to-business transactions.

2. Electronic data interchange (EDI), the business-to-business exchange of data using compatible software.
3. Email, instant messaging, and other Web-enabled communication tools and their use as media for reaching prospective and existing customers. 4. The gathering and use of demographic, product and other information through Web contacts.

E-commerce vs. E-business

e-Commerce is defined as buying and selling over digital media. e-Business encompasses e-commerce, but also includes both fontand back office applications that form the engine for modern business. It also redefines old business models, with the aid of technology, to maximize customer value.

What is Cross-Functional Enterprise System?

It cross the boundaries of traditional business functions in order to reengineer and improve vital business processes all across the enterprise. It provides significant business value to a company, its customers and partners.

Examples: Customer Relationship Management (CRM) Partner Relationship Management (PRM) Supply Chain Management (SCM) Knowledge Management (KM)

Enterprise Application Architecture

How does a business interconnect some of the cross-functional enterprise systems?

Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) software Enables users to model the business processes involved in the interactions that should occur between business applications. Provides middleware that performs data conversion and coordination, application communication and messaging services and access to the application interfaces involved

Integrate a variety of enterprise application clusters by letting them exchange data according to rules derived from the business process models developed by users.
Integrate the front-office and back-office applications of a business so they worked together in a seamless, integrated way.

Enterprise Application Integration

Figure show that, how EAI software can integrate the front office & back office applications of an E-business.

Enterprise Application Integration

Here, EAI software connects major e-business applications like CRM & ERP. Thats because EAI integrates access to the entire customer and product data representative need to quickly serve customers. EAI also streamlines sales order processing so products and services can be delivered faster. Thus, EAI improves customer & supplier experience with the business because of its responsiveness.


Transactional Processing Systems

What is Transaction Processing Systems (TPS)?

Are cross-functional information systems designed to process routine business transactions. It support business processes mainly accounting & finance transactions e.g, Purchases & Orders, banking, financial, stocks, airline reservation system.

Transactions are events that occur as part of doing business such as sales, purchases, deposits withdrawals, refunds and payments. Online transaction processing systems Plays a strategic role in electronic commerce. These real-time systems, which capture and process transactions immediately, can help them provide superior service to customers and other trading partners. Many firms are using the Internet, extranets and other networks that tie them electronically to their customers or suppliers for online transaction processing (OLTP).

Value of Transaction Processing System (TPS)

Efficiency Paperless Transactions Reduce manual data entry Speed up transaction process Elimination of redundant steps

Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) Real Time systems, immediate feedback Real time Reports and databases updates

The Transaction Processing Cycle

5 Basic Activities of Transaction Processing Cycle :

1) Data Entry 2) Transaction Processing 3) Database Maintenance

4) Document and Report Generation

5) Inquiry Processing

5 Basic Activities of Transaction Processing Cycle :

1) Data Entry The process of collecting and capturing transactions. The data is collected by scanning, recording, coding and editing activities.
Examples of devices used in data automation include: Point-of-Sale (POS) transaction terminals ATM (Automated Teller Machine) terminals Optical character recognition (OCR) scanners and wands PCs and network computers with cash drawers as intelligent POS terminals. Portable digital radio terminals and pen-based tablet for remote data entry PCs equipped with touch screens and voice recognition systems for data entry. Bar coded tags Magnetic stripe cards Electronic website on the Internet.

5 Basic Activities of Transaction Processing Cycle :

2) Transaction Processing

Two basic ways that Transaction Processing systems process the data: Batch Processing All transactions for a period of time would be collected in a group (called a batch), input & processed as a unit. This was normally done at regular intervals, such as every hour, day or week.
Real-time Processing - also called online transaction processing (OLTP) where each transaction is processed immediately as it occurs. The drawback to OLTP is the high costs because of its fault tolerance features that can continue to operate even if the parts of the system fail.

5 Basic Activities of Transaction Processing Cycle :

3) Database Maintenance It is designed to keep a database running smoothly. It is also used to keep the database clean and well organized so that it will not lose functionality.
TPS helps ensure the databases are up-to-date and correct. 4) Document and Report Generation Transaction processing systems produce a variety of documents and reports. Examples of transaction documents include: Purchase Orders Pay checks Sales receipts Invoices Bank statements

5 Basic Activities of Transaction Processing Cycle :

5) Inquiry Processing Many transaction processing systems allow you to use the Internet, intranets, extranets and Web browsers or database management query languages to make inquiries and receive responses concerning the results of transaction processing activity Examples of queries: Checking on the status of a sales order Checking on the balance in an account Checking on the amount of stock inventory

What is Enterprise Collaboration Systems (ECS)?

Its main objective is to provide each user with the tools that enhance communication ,coordination and collaboration to specific team and individual with the enterprise. Operational employees can work together more easily and effectively. Example of software tools that enhance enterprise collaboration: Electronic Communication Tools Help user share everything from voice and text messages to copies of project documents and data files within workgroup. Electronic Conferencing Tools Help people communicate and collaborate as they worked together. It enable the embers of the team and workgroups at different locations to exchange ideas interactively at the same time or at different times. Collaborative Work Management Tools Help people accomplish or manage group work activities

The Business Backbone

Sheilla G. Capuchino

Enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems serve as a cross-functional enterprise backbone. It integrates and automates many internal business processes and information systems within the manufacturing, logistics, distribution, accounting, finance, and human resource functions of a company.


ERP software is a family of software modules that supports the business activities involved in vital back-office processes.
ERP gives a company an integrated real-time view of its core business processes. ERP systems track business resources, and the status of commitments made by the business no matter what department has entered the data into the system.


Quality and Efficiency

ERP creates a framework for integrating and improving a companys internal business processes that results in significant improvements in the quality and efficiency of customer service, production, and distribution.


Decreased Costs

Many companies report significant reductions in transaction processing costs and hardware, software, and IT support staff compared to the non-integrated legacy systems that were replaced by their new ERP systems.


Decision Support

ERP provides vital cross-functional information on business performance quickly to managers to significantly improve their ability to make better decisions in a timely manner across the entire business enterprise.


Enterprise Agility

ERP can be used in breaking down many former departmental and functional walls, which results in more flexible organizational structures, managerial responsibility, and work roles.


Costs and risks considerable. involved in implementing ERP are

Hardware and software costs are a small part of the total costs. The costs of developing new business processes (reengineering) and preparing employees for the new system (training and change management) make up the bulk of implementing a new ERP system.

Converting data from previous legacy systems to the new cross-functional ERP system is another major category of ERP implementation costs.


12% 15% 43% Reengineering Data Conversions Training and Change Management 15%




Business managers and IT professionals underestimate the complexity of the planning, development, and training that are needed to prepare for a new ERP system that would radically change their business processes and information systems.


Failure to involve affected employees in the planning and development phases and change management programs
Trying to do too much too fast in the conversion process.

Insufficient training in the work tasks required by the ERP system.


Failure to do enough data conversion and testing.

Overreliance by company or IT management on claims of ERP software vendors or the assistance of prestigious consulting firms hired to lead the implementation


ERP software packages are gradually being modified into more flexible products. In relation to the growth of the Internet and corporate intranets and extranets prompted software companies to use Internet technologies to build Web interfaces and network capabilities into ERP systems.

Development of interenterprise ERP systems that provide Web-enabled links between key business systems of a company and its customers, suppliers, distributors, and others.


ERP software companies have developed modular, Web-enabled software suites that integrate ERO, customer relationship management, supply chain management, procurement, decision support, enterprise portals, and other business applications and functions.


Auto systems produce headlamps for major automobile manufacturers Until a few years ago, the manufacturing process was managed with paper documents.

An ERP system was installed, but did not extend to the shop floor.
Significant research was done before deciding to add the shop floor reporting module.


Installing PCs and ERP software on the shop floor allows Auto Systems to Enter timely, and accurate information. Plan more efficiently. Make production changes in order to avoid labor or scrap problems. Discuss these issues with employees while they are still current and meaningful.

Please cite at least two causes of Enterprise Resource Planning failure.

CRM in Action: NetSuite, Berlin Packaging and Churchill Downs

The CRM implementations in this case highlight the critical importance of information about customers, their preferences and activities, and how to use it to understand and develop better marketing solutions. The benefits are well-understood but the risks and concerns for customers are not well addressed especially with regards to customer privacy.

NetSuite: The Secret to CRM is in the Data

NetSuite Inc. is a leading provider of on-demand enterprise applications, including CRM. Other important players in this market include and Siebel On Demand.

Churchill Downs: The Secret to CRM is in the Data

Churchill Downs Incorporated is the parent company of Churchill Downs. The company owns several other thoroughbred and standard bred racetracks. Churchill Downs Incorporated is listed on the NASDAQ as CHDN. The company is the most profitable track owner in the horse racing industry.

Churchill Downs: The Secret to CRM is in the Data

Before installing CRM, it was previously thought that there were 4 customer types but after using CRM it was discovered that there were 9 customer types indicating that previous marketing efforts were not targeted or useful as should have been.

Berlin Packaging: The Secret to Berlin CRM is in the Data Packaging is a major North
American supplier of packaging, closures and related services to manufacturers in a wide array of industries, including beverage, food, personal care, pharmaceutical, household care, and industrial and coatings sectors. of more than $600 million. At the end of 2011, the firm had 32 U.S. sales offices in 21 U.S. states and Puerto Rico as well as over 50 dedicated or third-party warehouse locations across the United States.

Berlin Packaging: The Secret to CRM is in the Data

The company realized that it had many data silos due to disparate systems (Supply Chain, ERP, Sales database, etc.). Customer data was balkanized. So Berlin opted to use the PeopleTools programming code in the ERP system to build bolt-on applications that convert financial and supply chain management functions into CRM processes. Benefit: The knowledge that there are no other collec- tions of customer data elsewhere in the company provides significant peace of mind.

Emerson Transaction Hub: A Bright Idea thats Paying off

St. Louis manufacturer that ships supplies to Asia and North America and Europe Emerson executives:
Why pay to send inventory from one supplier on one ship and goods from a second supplier on another ship, when both deliveries are coming from the same place and could be loaded into a single container?

Emerson Transaction Hub

2005 pilot program: Logistics provider (specializes in transporation management for freight carriers) worked with two divisions to consolidate multiple orders into the same shipping container The pilot saved money Global supply chains tightened by better tracking shipments and mapping inventory

Emerson Transaction Hub

Wanted to expand the program Emerson has 70 business units that purchase goods from 35,000 suppliers Each unit communicates with its own suppliers via combination of e-mail, spreadsheets, faxes, and phone calls

Emerson Transaction Hub

Vision: SINGLE HUB that everyone would link to using communications mechanisms and data formats
To serve as a unified gateway that Emersons business, logistics providers, and suppliers could use to exchange information For a single communications hub to work, everyone has to speak the same language

Emerson Transaction Hub

Decided to conduct transactions via two data formats: EDI (using the ANSSI ASC X12 formats) and OAGIS XML
The order is sent to the transaction hub which translates the message into OAGIS XML Providers communicate shipment status to the Emerson division through the hub

A business unit initiates transaction, such as purchase order, through its ERP system

Providers and suppliers then coordinate shippings

Putting 10 suppliers in the same shipping container cuts cost by 35%

Emerson Transaction Hub

With information such as purchase orders and shipping notices in a common format, Emerson has more visibility into its supply chain, increasing inventory control efficiency by ensuring that materials arent over- or under-stocked

Challenges of SCM systems

Lack of proper demand planning knowledge, tools, and guidelines Inaccurate or overoptimistic demand forecasts will cause major production, inventory, and other business problems, no matter how efficient the rest of the SCM process is constructed In accurate production inventory, and other business data provided by a companys other information systems

Challenges of SCM
Lack of adequate collaboration
among marketing, production, and inventory management departments within a company, and with suppliers, distributors, and others

Companies consider even the SCM software tools themselves to be immature, incomplete, and hard to implement
