E-Commerce Servers and Back-End Integration: A Case-Based Comparison of Commercial Wholesaling and Retailing Software

Niels Chr. Juul and Claudia Loebbecke

Abstract: With the growing importance of E-Commerce, commercially

available E-Commerce servers are increasingly gaining ground. Our

research investigates two of the most commonly implemented

products, IBM's Net.Commerce (NC) and Microsoft's Site Server

Commerce (SSC) Edition. After a short description of the two

systems, this paper introduces the case of the shoe wholesaler

ROHDE, for which prototypes of both systems have been

implemented and investigated. Although our case is

business-to-business, the findings are also applicable to the

business-to-consumer segment. The ROHDE specific comparison

investigates the implementation appropriateness and feasibility of

both systems in the light of ROHDE's business requirements. It

focuses on the integration of the servers with the installed back-end

system. Our findings are summarized and directions for further

research are given in the concluding section.
