1. Objectives and competences
- The objective of the course is to familiarize students with technological, organizational and legal knowledge that is required in e-business along with the latest trends in this area. The emphasis is on practical skills, i.e., students model a business (sub)process, develop a necessary e-business application and integrate it with the background information system.
The course contains the following themes:
- Introduction and basic definitions.
- Short historical overview of the field.
- Systemic view on e-business through its generic structures (internal and external logistic chains, their influence on decision making).
- Technological views: EDI, XML, web services / cloud computing, component architectures, digital payment systems, new technological trends like semantic web, internet of things and mobile applications.
- Organizational views (evolution of business functions and processes, new business models, auditing procedures ISO 27000).
- Legislation views with emphasis on ZEPEP, ZEPEP-A, ZEKOM.
- Specific views related to development and introduction of e-business systems (strategic planning changes, use of formal methods, and compliance with standards like Common Criteria).

5. Learning and teaching methods
- Lectures, laboratory work (with practical prototype implementations), students’ presentations.
- Attendance of laboratory work is mandatory (the exact percentage is announced at the beginning of a study year). The lecturer may also impose mandatory attendance of lectures as well.
- 50% of the final grade is obtained on the basis of on-going work in the laboratory (home-works, quizzes, practical project implementations and presentations). The other 50% is obtained on the basis of written exam, which may be complemented by oral exam if a lecturer decides so. The lecturer may also impose a rule that a quality coursework serves as a replacement for exam.
- To be eligible for written exam, a candidate must have successfully completed laboratory work. For successful completing of the course both grades have to be positive.
