Product Description

About the Author

William Davis- Professor Davis wrote his first program in 1967, back in the days when the title "hacker" was considered a compliment. In 1971, he joined the faculty at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, where he began as a teacher who writes and evolved into a writer who teaches. Professor Davis is a very successful author whose previously published texts include Computing Fundamentals: Concepts, Systems Analysis and Design, Productivity Tools, and The NECEN Voyage.


John "Skip" Benamati- Dr. Benamati joined IBM in 1994 as a database administrator, and left as a corporate information technology (IT) consultant in 1994 to pursue his dream of sharing his real-world experience with students at the college level. With a Master's in Computer Science (Marist College, 1987) and Doctorate in Philosophy (Univ. of Kentucky, 1997), he joined Miami University's MIS department as an assistant professor in 1997. The focus of his doctoral and ongoing research is IT change and its effect on IT management. Dr. Benamati has published articles about IT change and e-commerce in numerous journals, and he continues to provide consulting services.

good introductory discussion Feb. 26 2005
By W Boudville - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The authors have put together a primer on explaining e-commerce. The ideal audience for this book appears to be an IT manager or perhaps a programmer. The discussion is mostly at a level above actual programming. You don't need working knowledge of JavaScript, HTML, Java, web servers or other related topics.

The book delves into key ideas of organising a web service, such as what is an n-tier application. Cryptography also gets good coverage. A qualitative explanation is given of the Public Key Infrastructure and Certificate Authorities, without descending into the maths of number theory.

Malware is also covered. Though, given its increasing severity, perhaps a more extensive analysis may have been warranted.

Overall, the book places all these topics in the context of building and running a large e-commerce service. If you do wish to go in this direction, the book is a good start. Though you will certainly need more specialised texts later.
