This study is intended to identify factors, which influence suppliers’ participation in the private electronic market (PEM). The results of this study show that many suppliers do not recognize the potential benefits that PEM could offer and they do not believe their off-line relationships with a buyer could be transferred to on-line. Thus, buyers need to convince their suppliers that PEM is not just a price based marketplace but instead a business model where mutual benefits can be achieved based on existing trust relationships between a buyer and limited number of qualified suppliers.

E-procurement systems are computer systems and communication networks through which firms buy and sell products. We identify two types of e-procurement systems: extranets and e-markets. Extranets connect the buyer and its suppliers with a closed network, while e-markets create open networks for buyer and supplier interactions. The differences between them lie in system implementation costs, marketplace benefits, and the extent of supplier competitive advantage that develops due to information sh...

The growing interest in the use of electronic data interchange (EDI) to revolutionize the way in which business conducts trading activities leads to research questions concerning the characteristics of electronic partnerships that promote implementation success. The research model in this study shows that partnership attributes affect EDI implementation, which has three dimensions: integration, utilization and diversity, and performance. Partnership attributes encompass partner trust, interdepen...

Executive Overview For centuries, Korea was known only to its immediate neighbors, China, Japan, and Russia. Not quite strong enough to control its own destiny, while occupying a strategic location among ambitious and powerful neighbors, Korea has gone through numerous crises in its recent history. Japanese colonization, the devastating Korean War, poverty, and a backward social infrastructure left the country ill prepared to face the modern world. However, these multiple shocks to the nation aw...

This study used institutional theory as a lens to understand the factors that enable the adoption of interorganizational systems. It posits that mimetic, coercive, and normative pressures existing in an institutionalized environment could influence organizational predisposition toward an information technology-based interorganizational linkage. Survey-based research was carried out to test this theory. Following questionnaire development, validation, and pretest with a pilot study, data were col...

Le langage XML (eXtensible Markup Language) constitue un moyen simple et rentable de communication par courrier electronique entre les plates-formes de technologie de l'information. Il supprime la necessite de saisie manuelle des donnees, reduit le risque d'erreurs et permet au personnel de se concentrer sur la production de benefices. En depit de ses avantages, les entreprises britanniques sont encore peu nombreuses a l'adopter a la place de l'EDI (echange de donnees informatise).

Given the importance of widespread adoption for the success of electronic data interchange (EDI) and the "much-slower-than-anticipated" growth of EDI adoption in small businesses, in this study we aimed to identify the key determinants of small business EDI adoption. Based on prior research on IT/EDI adoption in large/small organizations, a model that incorporates 7 factors that are hypothesized to have influence on the EDI adoption decision was developed and empirically tested against data coll...

This paper is the first test of a parsimonious model that posits three factors as determinants of the adoption of electronic data interchange (EDI):readiness, perceived benefits, andexternal pressure. To construct the model, we identified and organized the factors that were found to be influential in prior EDI research. By testing all these factors together in one model, we are able to investigate their relative contributions to EDI adoption decisions. Senior purchasing managers, chosen for thei...

Abstract Business-to-business electronic markets have a profound influence on the manner in which organizational buyers and sellers interact. As a result, it is important to develop an understanding of the behaviors of firms that participate in these markets. The authors develop a typology for the nature of organizational participation to explain the behaviors of user firms in business-to-business electronic markets. The proposed model hypothesizes that the nature of participation depends on org...

We study the structure of markets when traders are given the opportunity to create their own market, as on the internet.On the internet, public exchanges have in many cases been replaced by private exchanges.We use experiments to investigate possible reasons for the failure of public exchanges.In our experimental markets, when traders make an offer, they decide whom to inform about the offer.Participants typically inform all traders on the other side of the market, but not on their own side, res...

Past research has revealed that the social commerce market has become both a new opportunity and a threat for companies. However, these studies analyzed the correlation for just one business model and provided inconclusive suggestions. We contribute to fill this gap in the electronic service quality literature by comparing two distinct electronic commerce models: the online open market and social commerce. Using the Kano model and analytic hierarchy process analysis, we empirically investigate 3...

The objective of this study is to analyse previous research on the adoption and diffusion of business-to-business electronic commerce (B2B EC). The study focuses on case- and survey-based empirical research. We identified a total of 197 relevant studies and classified them using several categories. An analysis of these studies enabled us to discover a variety of issues in B2B EC adoption and diffusion research with respect to research objectives and methodologies, use of theory, adoption and dif...

This article examines the effects of government policy on entry restriction for firms within a specific market of the Spanish gambling industry. Spain is an ideal economic region for studying this topic, as it allows for the analysis of quasi-identical populations exposed to different regulatory regimes. In Spain, gaming legislation is determined at the autonomous community level (state level), where differences across states within a single country are of particular interest. This paper analyse...

Business to business (B2B) is the fastest growing segment of the explosive growth of e-commerce. The purpose of this study is to identify internal factors which influence the supplier’s intention to adopt private exchange (PE), a single buyer side electronic market (EM). This study identified cost, flexibility, delivery, and quality as internal capabilities and investigated how these four factors influence suppliers’ participation in PE. The results of the study indicate the following: (1) suppl...

The importance of inter-organizational system (IOS) has been increasingly recognized by organizations. However, IOS adoption has proved to be difficult and, at this stage, why this is so is not fully uncovered. In practice, benefits have often remained concentrated, primarily accruing to the dominant party, resulting in low rates of adoption and usage, and often culminating in the failure of the IOS. The main research question is why organizations initiate or join IOS and what factors influence ...
