Does e-Business Require Different Skills?

 This article argues for differentiated talent for "digital marketing."

 e-Business function has seen many configurations - separate function, within the IT Organization, within the marketing organization and everything in between.

The problem starts with a clear understanding of e-Business - what is it? Some take it to be a different kind of it; some as a new channel and some others as a new business.

In any event, the discussion is interesting and worth a read!
