Electronic Business (E-Business)

Definition - What does Electronic Business (E-Business) mean?

Electronic business (e-business) refers to the use of the Web, Internet, intranets, extranets or some combination thereof to conduct business. E-business is similar to e-commerce, but it goes beyond the simple buying and selling of products and services online. E-business includes a much wider range of businesses processes, such as supply chain management, electronic order processing and customer relationship management. E-business processes, therefore, can help companies to operate more effectively and efficiently.

Techopedia explains Electronic Business (E-Business)

Electronic business is a broader term that encompasses other common terms such as e-commerce and e-tailing. As more of companies' sales, marketing and other internal business processes are conducted digitally, electronic business processes such as customer relationship management (CRM), enterprise resource planning (ERP), and content management are becoming increasingly important. This shift has also been facilitated by improved security measures for online transactions.
