COMPUTER NETWORKS AND MULTIMEDIA TECHNIQUES IN DEVELOPMENT OF
VIRTUAL ORGANISATIONS AND E-COMMERCE
The study presents the dynamic development and integration of computer
networks, multimedia and infomedia, as well as their application in virtualising
business (virtual) organisations activities. On the background of characteristics of
networks, multimedia, virtual organisations (VO) types, functioning and information
systems (IOS), the authors discuss their interrelations and progressing global integration which created conditions for OV effective functioning on the global
scale. The two-level nature of VO management systems and information systems has been shown together with the necessity of continuous reengineering of business
processes in order to retain the competitiveness of OV and their partner enterprises.
Moreover, the article discusses latest directions and forms of reorganising processes in OV, as well as IT systems (R-3) and tools (ALE) optimising these processes.
