With the penetration of e-media (from traditional internet to internet of things and pervasive computing) into all areas of our lives business and private) new ways of doing business emerged. These new ways are largely determined by technology. However, although technology is the key driver, knowing only this technology is not sufficient for successful e-business. Therefore this course starts with the basic definitions and a brief historical overview of the field. Next, a systemic view on e-usiness is given with analysis and simulation of some typical structures like internal and external logistic chains, and the effects f decision making on their behavior. This topic will be followed by technological views with the emphasis on integration, first of data and documents (RIP, XML technologies, semantic web with RDF and OWL), and processes integration (standards SOAP / UDDI / WSDL, PEL and BPMN). Also the complementary technological means for e-business will be covered, i.e., electronic payment systems. In the second part we will focus on organizational views (business functions and processes, information systems evolution, new business models
and auditing standards like COBIT and ISO 27000). The main EU and national legislation in this domain will be given next. In the end we will analyze e-business specific methods for planning and introduction of new information systems (advancements in strategic IS management, use of formal methods, compliance with standards like Common Criteria, etc.), and state future developments in this area.

Practical laboratory work will consist of hands-on work that, for example, covers e-biz portal development, its integration with back-end system and business logic, introduction of a payment system a'la eBay, and inclusion of a mobile application. However, also ectures will be "refreshed" and will include hands-on work in focused and specialized areas of e-business like ontology development, simulations, innovation thinking techniques, etc.

Finally, it is recommended that students are familiar with Information systems course. The course will be in Slovene.
