Mobile commerce and wireless computing systems
ADDISON WESLEY Publishing Company Incorporated, 2004 - Business & Economics - 532 pages
As content delivery over wireless devices becomes faster and more secure, it is thought that mobile commerce (m-commerce) will overtake tethered e-commerce as the medium of choice for digital commerce transactions. As well as the obvious effect on financial services (mobile banking), telecommunications, and retail and information services (such as video delivery of sports results) it is also likely to have a profound effect on the way a wide variety of businesses arrange for people to meet and interact.
Applications oriented, showing how good systems design leads to efficient and effective m-commerce systems.
Balances enthusiasm for the technological capabilities with wider social and political implications through discussion of security and ethical issues.
Tutorial approach, with exercises, student activities, short case studies and technical reports to enhance learning.
This book is intended for anyone wishing to find out more about the theory and practice of commercially exploiting these exciting and ground-breaking new technologies.
