The emergence of electronic business is one of the most profound changes
that revolutionized the process of buying, selling, and exchanging
products and services over the Internet. Companies across the world are
rapidly adopting e-business technologies. Estimates suggest that the
global e-business market will reach $527.2 billion by 2005. Organizations
and customers have access to vast amounts of data, information, and

in electronic business research that will provide insights into issues,
challenges, and solutions related to the successful application and

California's second largest city is know for its near-idyllic climate,
miles of pristine beaches and a dazzling array of world-class family
attractions, including the world-famous San Diego Zoo and Wild Animal
Park, Sea World San Diego and LEGOLAND California. San Diego, which
encompasses charming neighbourhoods and communities, includes downtown's
historic Gaslamp Quarter, Little Italy, Coronado, La Jolla, Del mar,
Carlsbad, Escondido and much more. To the east, the terrain varies from
gentle foothills to mile-high mountains. In the north, the land produces
quantities of flowers as well as quality grapes that become excellent
wines. The west features 70 miles of Pacific Ocean coastline, and the
south borders Mexico, featuring its own cultural offerings in various
towns along the border and coastlines.
