Abstract

The internet era has revealed new Business challenges and opportunities, some obstacles and new business solutions, but mostly a new way to make business. Larger companies have made the progression quickly and have adapted to the new business environment without major constraints, eBusiness is now part of their strategies.

On the other hand, for Small and Medium size Enterprises, this process, not only has taken longer to be initiated but it also represents a process that requires efforts and resources that often are not available for part of these companies. The changes that Information Technologies and the Digital Era have brought to the business environment represent an extra challenge and effort to the SMEs to overcome. The use of the eBusiness processes can represent a new via and bring solutions that will support these companies to respond to those changes and overcome the new challenges. The purpose of this work is to look at the concepts and advantages of the adoption of an eBusiness Strategy and what processes are available to SMEs to pursue this adoption.

From this work we can see the relevance of SMEs is the European Market and some of the concepts, issues and constraints that need to be considered when adopting an eBusiness strategy and some of the supporting programs in Europe that provide some support to the European SMEs wishing to go online.
