E-business has finally made it onto Unisys' radar screen. With the release of its new online business solutions package, e-@ction, Unisys is hoping to treble e-business revenues.
Following the launch of the package, John Frankenfield, vice president and general manager of Unisys South Pacific, said the new package will include 60 integrated software solutions, including video-on-demand, WAP and natural language applications, Frankenfield said. The release of e-@action coincides with the upcoming release of Windows 2000.
Frankenfield said businesses could be divided into two categories: bricks-and-mortar (B&M) and online. He said neither could succeed in its pure form because online business needed logistical resources to support customer relationships and B&M businesses needed the Web as a "front end".
