This assignment comprises a self-sourced case study, which means you must find your own appropriate case study. The case study is vital to your success in this subject and will be of great benefit to your understanding of electronic commerce systems. See your tutor or lecturer to discuss the suitability of your chosen case study.

The case study must examine an organisation or specific system involving (1) a comparison among three or more organisations in the same industry or service sector, which perhaps has a number of different types of EC interfaces. The case study must be based on a real electronic commerce system in Australia, Hong Kong or other International location (examples are: web sites, EDI systems, intranets, extranets, organisations planning electronic commerce systems and cashless systems). (2) Literature review to establish a robust framework about criteria for assessing and comparing the systems in the selected companies. After comparison, the best system is identified and further improvement may be recommended in the case study report. (3) Data gathering should be conducted by methods such as reading of company documents, conducting interviews, surveys or other appropriate techniques.
