Summary

It is easy to be seduced by the lure of computing technology, whether for Internet commerce or any other application. The technology, however, is only one factor—albeit the flashiest—in the effective use of computer systems. In particular, an Internet commerce system must enable a business to deliver value to its customers. With the technology components in place, they must be operated in a way consistent with delivering that value and with the reliability, security, and performance expected by the customers. The operational task may not be glamorous, but it is absolutely fundamental to the success of the business, which is, of course, what the effort is all about.

The first part of this book has focused on the nontechnology parts of an Internet commerce system: understanding the business issues, focusing on the customer, developing an architecture, and executing a plan. With that view, we now turn to the technology components of Internet commerce systems.
