However, what exactly is E-commerce? It can be described as an activity of selling or buying of products/services online over the Internet. E-commerce has disrupted businesses leading to major changes in industry structure, market place structure and business models. It draws on technologies such as electronic funds transfer, mobile commerce, supply chain management, online transaction processing, internet marketing, electronic data interchange (EDI), inventory management systems, and automated data collection systems, elaborated the experts.
VJIM has been organizing Business Conclaves for the last few years on various themes that are relevant to the business trends of the time. While last year VJIM chose to conduct these conclaves in the functional areas, this year the B-school is set to conduct these conclaves in the emerging and trending sectors. This is the third such conclave in this series and would address the challenges and championing areas of the E-commerce field. The first one was in BFSI with the second one being on the topic of Digital Marketing.
