The Internet and new digital media (Digital Tv, 3G mobile) offer a fundamentally new way of conducting business, creating tremendous opportunities and risks for organizations. E-commerce and computer-mediated interaction have transformed business by providing large-scale, instantaneous and nearly free commercial communications. This has changed vendor management and the nature of the supply chain speeding production and allowing it to respond to fluctuations in demand. More significant changes can be observed in consumer and business marketing since rapid access to information provides opportunities for customizing products, services, and advertising and promotional initiatives. Firms are able to measure the impact of marketing programs and supply-chain decisions as never before and enhance Customer Relationship Management strategies.
This course provides a series of strategic frameworks for managing marketing strategies in the digital marketplace. The emphasis throughout is on the development and application of conceptual models which clarify the interactions between competition, patterns of technological and market change, and the structure and development of internal firm capabilities.
