Part 1 – What is eCommerce?
This is the first in a three part series where we seek to provide some basic groundwork and understanding for the basics of ecommerce; what drives ecommerce (people and technology); and a little bit about the ecommerce platforms that underpin B2B and B2C digital commerce. Part 1 – The Basics Sale of goods and services At a very basic level, electronic commerce (ecommerce) or digital commerce is a transaction of goods or services between two parties (buyer and seller) over a digital channel generally using digital payment, i.e. credit cards, Apple Pay, Google Wallet, PayPal, Venmo, and bank cards, to name just a few types of payment. I say generally because as we’ve been seeing in the last 5 years or so, the lines are blurring between online and offline - which we’ll talk about more in subsequent sections. The end to end experience which includes ecommerce is called the digital customer experience and it encompasses more than just a transaction but also the initial communications and the post-sale interactions between the business and the buyer. The exchange can occur between a business and a consumer such as a purchase from a retailer’s website - a B2C transaction. The exchange can be between businesses such as an auto parts manufacturer selling to a local garage - a B2B transaction. It can even be a direct sale from one consumer or individual to another such as through sites like eBay or Craigslist, this is called C2C. There are variations on this too, where you could swap a business for a government entity in any of these scenarios.

Update: Strategy and Release of Nomad 1.0.4 for Apple iPad
I am delighted to bring you an essential update on the Digital Solutions strategy for HCL Nomad, the client interface to Domino applications. First, we are shipping HCL Nomad 1.0.4 for the Apple iPad available from the Apple App Store today. New name, same great product – HCL Nomad. While the Domino Mobile Apps product, officially rebranded to HCL Nomad, the mission and capabilities remain the same. As a result, run your existing Domino apps online or offline without any additional investment. Furthermore, if you were testing the Nomad on iPad via Apple TestFlight previously, you would be notified by email with the link to download the GA version on the Apple Store. Where am I? Nomad knows. The release includes some cool new features such as a new LotusScript interface for iOS and Android, built-in GPS and gyroscope capabilities. For instance, once V11 ships, your Domino apps can capture the user's exact LAT and LONG information. The possibilities for retail, asset management, audit/inspection and travel-based applications are endless. Personal Mail File Access. Yes, users by default can now access their private mail file using HCL Nomad. Hence, administrators should refer to the following link for MDM options for mail and other settings: Managing HCL Nomad via an MDM provider. What else is new in Nomad 1.0.4 and 1.0.3? Here's a brief synopsis of what we think is useful in case you missed it. Configuration of Nomad is now possible to avoid DNS, a necessary setting for some VPN solutions. We have added Notes Rich Text Selection. Double-tap a word to select text. Added Notes Rich Text Copy/Paste @Command FileOpenDatabase temporary flag now works with "Recent Applications", only when the applications were closed previously @Platform[Specific] returns additional entries for iOS: model type ("iPad" or "iPhone"), apple model identifier Native OS Style...
