“Businesses have begun to engage in increasingly sophisticated uses of information and communication technology. In such firms, B2C and B2B e-commerce are components of an overall e-business strategy. External relations as well as internal processes are being linked. Marketing and sales, logistics and delivery, after-sales service, supply chain management and other business functions are integrated in an overall e-business strategy.
“E-business tools cannot be successfully introduced and implemented without the visionary power and strategic decisions about how to apply information and communication technology for business processes.”

What is a trading execution system?

Gaps between external operations and internal systems are growing
The proliferation of e-commerce, e-procurement and supply chain tracking via the Internet is exponentially increasing the complexity of joining-up external operations with mission-critical internal systems, many of which were designed and built long ago to meet the needs of closed organizational silos. Replacing these internal systems is both expensive and risky.
