Abstract
The informational society is the result of the most spectacular environment changes, following the key role information plays in the society. Within it, the main forces that modify the activity landscape of an organization, raises ambitious challenges to the personnel and determines them to adopt more flexible structures, were synthesize in contemporaneous studies [1]-[2] as being the digitalisation of the information, connectivity, globalization, the extraordinary progress of technology, the appearance of new types of intermediaries and the personalization of the market offers, of the messages and of the companies means of communication. Therefore in order to better understand the online business and the e-commerce concept we must also understand how Internet changed the way business is made. The Internet made possible the environment changes of the businesses that are today no longer restrained by the borders between countries (making worldwide growth for businesses possible), opening new communications paths, new ways of collaboration and coordination between consumers, traders and business partners. All this changes resulted in reconsidering older practices or adopting them to the new conditions or even more the creation of new practices. This is how new terms and concepts appeared: business got a new prefix becoming e-business, while commerce migrated towards e-commerce.
