Rapid Prototyping for E-Business

Patrick Steiger, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Venue:18:30 , ETH-Zentrum, Clausiusstrasse 25, Building NW, Room B81, CH-8092 Zurich

Abstract Electronic Business (E-Business) is the integration of markets, organisations, processes, and systems using Internet-enabled and -related technologies. In other words: E-Business is efficient, fast, transparent, personalised, and lower-cost business run on an Inter-, Extra-, and Intranet infrastructure mostly with a Web front-end.
If an enterprise starts the process of turning itself into an E-Business - optimally by defining an E-Business strategy and by identifying opportunities of business areas which are then implemented according to their order of priority - often a Web-based prototype is developed to evaluate the first steps. Prototyping as it is addressed in this presentation is NOT about evaluation of technical aspects, but about validating functional requirements and rapidly providing an initial look & feel which can be tested on usability and potential business value.According to the fast development in the area of E-Business, such a prototype usually must be realised within a very short time frame (1 - 5 weeks).
Patrick Steiger will present the approach they take at PricewaterhouseCoopers to cope with these challenges. Prototypes created this summer will be demonstrated and serve as basis for a discussion.
