Review: "This book is a fantastic guide to online marketing, and the Internet in general. As a marketing practitioner, I've been finding my way own way through the online world for some time now but have always wondered if what I was doing was 'correct' and it would take me ages to find out what I needed to know through researching online articles, blogs, etc. I found this book to be fairly concise and focused. The references to other online articles that it includes are vast and can they be very absorbing. The best part about this is that it is written by someone that clearly has vast experience in the field and, unlike with some online articles, you get the feeling that what is advised is really 'best practice'. I'd recommend this book for anyone interested in digital marketing." Adam Butchart, Digital Marketing student Blurb: We love the Internet. We love digital and the connected world that we live in. We have spent the last six months gleaning every bit of knowledge, skill and opinion from the creative minds at Quirk.

In the coming years, digital technology will radically increase the speed at which business is conducted. Ultimately, digital technology will transform three major elements of any business: relationships with customers and business partners (commerce), information flow and relationships among workers within a company (knowledge management), and internal business processes (business operations). "E-commerce Strategies" deals with the first of these elements by providing IT decision-makers with a broad education about the benefits of implementing e-commerce solutions in the enterprise. It also provides case studies of successful e-commerce implementations using Microsoft technologies that offer benefits such as increased productivity, faster order cycles, lower manufacturing costs, and lower total cost of ownership. The book leads the reader through each case study, describes and quantifies its benefits in detail, and provides an evaluation guide to help the reader determine whether the case study and implementation are relevant to his or her own business. It also describes a set of consistent e-commerce business applications and ties them together chapter by chapter. The end of the book describes how these solutions can be woven together into a comprehensive, enterprise-wide system of digital solutions -- what Microsoft calls a Digital Nervous System (DNS).
