Abstract

When companies move from an e-commerce to an e-business enterprise, the technology–driven transformation generates new demand of IT workers. This paper examines several factors pertinent to e-business transformation, in terms of changes in architecture, enterprise applications, application development environment, organization change process, and tools and techniques. A framework is proposed to guide the identification of specific IT skill sets essential to e-business transformation. Further research will be conducted to evaluate the applicability of the framework for identifying IT skills.
