This article focuses on a survey, conducted in 2000, which revealed that while 64 percent of companies have an electronic business strategy and 35 percent claim to have a Web-enabled supply chain, only four percent actually have an electronic supply chain management system. Furthermore 62 percent of respondents do not see the acquisition of electronic business technology by their competitors as a threat. The main findings also revealed that the greatest restriction to optimizing electronic business capability within the organization was lack of understanding. Furthermore, 47 percent of companies are assigning the development, as well as the implementation, of an electronic business strategy to the information technology function.
