¡°E-Recruiting: Opportunities and Challenges¡±

In Lee, Editor-in-Chief, Western Illinois University, USA

Given the current technological advances and the pace of environmental
change, human resource professionals must proactively embrace technology
and integrate their core human resource processes in order to maximize the
value of human asset. Recently, a Web-enabled e-recruiting emerged quickly
as a powerful method for both job seekers and recruiters. E-recruiting has
driven companies to redesign the recruiting process and to move quickly to
Web-based integrated human resource systems.



¡°A Typology of Interorganizational Relationships: A Marriage, a Fling, or
Something in Between¡±

The decreasing cost of IT has encouraged organizations to seek new ways of
cooperating with members of the supply chain and other key strategic
partners. This increased cooperation is giving rise to a new type of
interorganizational system (IOS). Before the advent of the Internet, IS
integration required significant investments on the part of organizations
participating in an IOS. Such heavy investments, in turn, necessitated
close strategic cooperation in the non-IS domain, as well. Thus, IS
integration went hand-in-hand with non-IS (relational) integration in the
pre-Internet era. However, advances in Internet technology have
commoditized IS integration to a significant extent, thereby allowing the
uncoupling of IS integration and relational integration. It is now
possible for organizations to have IS integration without developing
strong non-IS linkages. The authors of this article suggest a framework to
account for this recent shift and present a typology for classifying
interorganizational systems based on the segregation of IS and relational
integration. The paper also serves to verify the typology in case studies
of four large firms.

¡°Which Move to the Middle: Industry Consortia or Private Exchanges?¡±

Susan A. Sherer, College of Business and Economics, Lehigh University, USA

The move-to-the-middle hypothesis has been used to predict firm
structures, suggesting that firms will move to more outsourcing but from a
reduced set of stable partners (Clemons et al., 1993). Extending this
hypothesis to predict electronic marketplace structures, this paper
suggests that both industry consortia and private exchanges represent a
move to the middle by reducing transaction costs and risks. In industries
with highly interdependent relationships, industry consortia may be more
successful because of their reduction of coordination costs without
corresponding increases in transaction risk. Within an industry, companies
may choose to participate in both types of marketplaces. Product
characteristics moderate the relationships between the transactions costs
and risk and the type of marketplace.

¡°Econometric Simulation for E-Business Strategy Evaluation¡±

Effective and efficient e-business strategy development is crucial to
achieve a competitive advantage in the electronic marketplace. However,
e-business strategy evaluation constitutes complex and dynamic challenges
for business management. This article offers assistance for the evaluation
process by applying a computer simulation that uses an econometric model
delivered through a decision-making support system. The major econometric
simulation logic and methodology introduced here covers multidisciplinary
areas and is among the first to identify and establish a comprehensive,
quantitative tool to support the strategy development processes of
e-businesses. The authors of this paper hope to shed some lights on
e-business strategy research through this article.

¡°A Fuzzy Logic-Based Approach for Supporting Decision- Making Process in
B2C Electronic Commerce Transaction¡±

This article presents an application of fuzzy logic to human reasoning
about e-commerce transactions. This article uncovers some of the hidden
relationships between critical factors such as security, familiarity,
design, and competitiveness. The authors analyze the effect of these
factors on human decision processes and how they affect the
Business-to-Consumer (B2C) outcome when they are used collectively. This
research provides a toolset for B2C vendors to access and evaluate a
user¡¯s transaction decision process and also an assisted reasoning tool
for the online user.

¡°An Exploratory Study of Consumer Adoption of Online Shopping: Mediating
Effect of Online Purchase Intention¡±

The authors of this paper conduct an exploratory study to investigate
consumer adoption of online purchase using a survey data set. Based upon
the theory of innovation and self-efficacy theory, risk aversion, online
proficiency, shopping convenience, and product choice variety are proposed
to influence consumer intention to shop online, which, in turn, affects
online purchases. Results of regression analyses reveal that all but
shopping convenience are significant predictors of consumer intention to
purchase online. Research and managerial implications of the findings are
