E-Commerce is a very general term. It is used to describe what happens
when commerce meets electronic communication. For example, home
banking via the Internet; share trading using linked networks of
computers, selling CDs and books over the World Wide Web, providing
insurance and other financial products via remote offices and
resellers using an Intranet or Extranet. Basically, anything that
involves commercial services and wires! Most of this is now becoming a
reality because of the Internet.
Unfortunately I can't refer you to any particular overview source but
I would think that a good place to start would be business magazines.
