In a recent study, Computer Economics analyzed the spending trends and staffing patterns within organizations at various stages of ecommerce implementation and use. The implementation stages in our study include researching, piloting, implementing, using, and not using ecommerce capabilities. For each ecommerce implementation stage, we determined the percentage of the IS budget allocated to the following line items: mainframes; midrange systems; LAN servers/superservers; data network infrastructure; workstations, desktop PCs, portables, and laptops; operating system and utility software; application software; outside services; personnel; facilities and overhead; consumable supplies; and training.
