Example text

For many companies, the reengineering of the software group is one of the highest-priority tasks. The good news is that the Internet, IIOP, XML, Java, COM+, ActiveX, and EJB technologies make it possible to build the kind of new Internet-enabled business processes that companies only dreamed of in the early 1990s. The bad news is that to take advantage of these technologies, companies need to adopt new software architectures and learn to use distributed component-based development techniques. In effect, they need to reinvent their IT organizations at the same time that they must also reinvent their core business processes.

In this situation, they will still need to divide their existing processes in order to assure that each subprocess is as efficient as possible. If they don't do this, they are simply waiting for some Internet upstart to figure out how to decompose one of their processes and begin to sell a portion of their package much more efficiently than they do. It's better to be proactive and deconstruct your own business processes rather than to wait for someone else to show you how to do it. In a similar way, most e-business strategy gurus advise companies to focus on creating new value propositions rather than focusing on revising their current products and services.

In some cases the decision will be stark: They should either specialize in producing and selling information, or they should focus on producing and selling material goods. In these cases, the company will need to redesign its business processes, making them slimmer and more focused, and then they will need to figure out how to work with others who will specialize in information or material processes that the company decides not to specialize in. More commonly, companies will decide, at least initially, that they will need to divide some business processes, but should continue to offer both material goods and information.
