Electronic Business - commonly referred to as "eBusiness" or "e-business" - may be defined (according to wikipedia) as the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) in support of all the activities of business. Commerce involves the exchange of products and services between businesses, groups and individuals, and can be seen as one of the essential activities of any business. Electronic Commerce focuses on the use of ICT to enable the external activities and relationships of the business with individuals, groups and other businesses.
