Currently, e-business is where the big money is to be had. These processes of getting-online alone are forcing firms to make huge changes---a cursory glance at the number of IT-related jobs advertised in the quality newspapers is all that is needed to see just how huge.
They are also the reason why it is the business community, and not the consumer, that has been driving the development of the net.
Despite all the hype about shopping online, e-commerce is primarily a business-to-business affair, and will remain so for the foreseeable future.
This progress is typical of the first stages of development of new technology, and may be compared to the way early motorcars were designed pretty much as carriages with an engine where the horses would have been.
The innovative designs that take the world by storm are few and far between but it is these pioneering concepts that shape the future.
With that in mind, the big consulting firms, IT and telecom companies--and a large number of ambitious start-ups--are working hard to find that rich vein saying that the ultimate prize will be won by those who innovate successfully.
Many noted companies are spurred on by forecasts suggesting that revenues from e-commerce in three years’ time will be in excess of $1,000 bn. Some studies---for example, by US research group Forrester and accountants KPMG---suggest much higher figures.
In exchange for a fee or an equity stake in the new company, these firms are prepared to offer assistance across the board---from finance to specialist expertise and even premises.
Although Bainlab’s Nick Greenspan says thinking laterally about how the future will be different and seizing that opportunity before anyone else does is very much the hard way to profit from e-business.
Bain’s Michael O’Sullivan agrees but warns that an inevitable consequence of the rush to set up is that over the next few years many e-businesses will fail--most of them small companies---falling by the wayside as the few who get it right stake out the market.
Particularly exposed to failure are projects launched by innovative e-entrepreneurs with a brilliant idea. Few of these ideas will get the support of start-up incubators because of the risks.
Finding backing for such projects is remarkably similar to the process of getting a script made into a movie---an interesting development in an industry with its spiritual home in Silicon Valley, a virtual stone’s throw from Hollywood.
It involves feverish networking---talking avidly to people through organizations like First Tuesday, which was specifically set up for the purpose---and convincing those with money or contacts to back your project. Even if the project is selected for development, the majority end up being shelved.
