Internet Strategy: The Road to Web Services Solutions reminds readers that several attempts have been made to convince the world that DOT.COM was developed to take over businesses, and the traditional way of creating businesses and running organizations would be condemned to the past. One of those attempts led to the Application Service Provision model, from which the current Web Services business model takes its origins.

As organizations start to carefully invest again, Internet Strategyshows that the focus is on delivering value and enabling growth. The book concentrates on how to create, execute and evolve a customer-centric strategy of any Internet-based management strategy in order to provide valuable customer experiences.

Internet Strategy presents how enabling technologies are as important as ever. It points out that there’s a need to move to new levels in thinking and execution, to help organizations maintain cost efficiencies and enable growth in revenues and profitability.
