TOWARDS A SELF-FORMING BUSINESS NETWORKING ENVIRONMENT

Claudia-Melania Chituc, Americo Lopes Azevedo

Abstract

The rapid evolution of the markets and the changing client’s demands determined enterprises to adapt their business from traditional business practices to e-business, and new forms of collaboration (such as supply chain enterprises, extended enterprises or virtual enterprises) were created. Technologies such as Peer-to-Peer, Web services, intelligent agents, Workflow become core technologies supporting enterprise integration, streamlining transactions while supporting process coordination and consistency. The aim of this paper is to concisely present some relevant business integration reference models, frameworks, standards and technologies, and to propose an approach towards the development of a conceptual framework for a self-forming business networking environment based on Plug-and-Do Business paradigm.
