Sterling Commerce, IBM Host E-Commerce Seminars

In an effort to promote the IT management benefits of e-commerce, and subsequently promote their own line of e-commerce-enabling solutions, Sterling Commerce Inc. (Columbus, Ohio) and IBM will sponsor "Trends in E-commerce," a multi-city seminar series.

Each free, half-day seminar will feature Tom Oleson, research director with International Data Corp. (Framingham, Mass.), as the keynote speaker. Oleson is expected to present the components of e-commerce, market trends and "real-world" examples of the returns being realized by those companies that have implemented successful e-commerce strategies.

Seminar dates and locations include: Sept. 14 at The Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco; Oct. 12 at The Westin Galleria in Dallas; Oct. 14 at The Ritz-Carlton in Atlanta; Nov. 9 at The Ritz-Carlton in Chicago; Nov. 11 at The King Edward in Toronto; Nov. 18 at the Boston Park Plaza in Boston.
