At this Panel, Donald O'Toole and Scott Cosby discuss
the impact of current and future technology on eBusiness. From Linux
to GRID computing, Web services to e-sourcing, IBM Research & Development
teams have embraced Internet standards to make a digital, border-free
enterprise possible. IBM calls this future marketplace "Dynamic
e-business" and it is part of IBM's perpetually unfinished eBusiness
strategy to help customers solve their business problems. In support
of "Dynamic e-business," IBM and its partners are providing flexible,
innovative, and proven infrastructure which are focused on the transitions
that organizations face during their eBusiness journey. Research
indicates technology is now ready to help enterprises dynamically
adapt business processes and associated systems to support changing
business strategies and tactics. Mr. Allison and Mr. O'Toole will
discuss these developments in the first hour. During the second
hour, audience participants will have the opportunity to engage
in a lively, knowledge exchange with the panelists.
