The article reports on electronic commerce, or e-commerce, and information technology (IT) spending. A survey that was conducted by the Financial Executives International (FEI) organization found that e-commerce accounts for 18 percent of IT budgets. About 71 percent of the companies responding to the survey indicated that they were involved in e-commerce projects. Only about ten percent of the respondents experienced significant problems from Y2K or year 2000 date conversion in computer systems. Other statistics suggest that companies are uncertain about the expected returns on technology investments.
