Research and Development in E-Business through Service-Oriented Solutions

A book edited by: Katalin Tarnay, Lai Xu and Sandor Imre

Publisher: IGI Global, Hershey, USA

Project URL:

Last call for proposals: March 31, 2012.



The constantly developing information and communication technologies resulted in the extension of the “E-world”: starting from e-commerce through e-government and even e-health, these technologies became ever important fields of science in the past years. In the editors’ view, one of the flagships of the so called information age is e-business: a broad concept branching into various application fields, efficiently and rapidly processing information among business partners, and simply and solely making life easier for all parties involved. New services, protocols, modeling and markup languages, and other advanced technical solutions are required to meet the new standards. Moreover, cloud computing, as a concept of public utility even accelerates the necessity of these methods.



The editors of this book believe the economical and social advances of e-business are strongly depending on the technical solutions supporting it. There are a vast amount of specialized knowledge sources promoting e-business as a sort of a service tool improving the efficiency of the way we make business with our partners. To continue our train of thought, we wish to share and hopefully extend the knowledge of individuals creating the technical basis of this field: university professors and students, researchers, developers, service providers and other experts.
