Intranets and extranets are communication tools designed to enable easy information sharing within workgroups.
Intranet a private computer network that uses the protocols of the Internet.
Facilitate communication between people or workgroups to improve the data sharing capability and overall knowledge base of an organization's employees.
A common extension to intranets, called extranets, opens this firewall to provide controlled access to outsiders. Intranet consists of an internal email system and perhaps a message board service. More sophisticated intranets include Web sites and databases containing company news, forms, and personnel information.
A network that links an enterprise to various divisions and business partners, using secure Internet links.
An extranet can allow public access to employees, customers, clients or partners. The extranet uses Internet protocols so users can navigate with a browser, but resides on the company's private server rather than on a public Internet server. Extranet access from the Internet can be controlled through password or username specific. Another resource an extranet can provide is the ability to create secure areas for interaction between an organization and its partners or resellers. Extranets can revolutionize the way a company does business, improve the bottom line, enrich the customer base, and create opportunities

The E-commerce process is the entire process that takes place when a customer's data is collected, stored, analysed, and then presented back to the customer in a useful format.
Our E-business process is only a small portion of our E-commerce process. Because of this, our E-commerce overview will concentrate on the portion of our system that is not visible to our clients. This portion of the system is the "behind the scenes" part of our business strategy. Our e-commerce plan is based upon the storage and analysis of two groups of data:
Demographical data on their customers
Usage statistics of the arcade machines (time in use, money collected)
Â The demographics will be data such as the age, sex, and location of our customer's patrons.
We may expand the field of information collected and provided to our customers.
Our clients will be able to view the data. We have collected and analysed via a web via the Internet. Clients will be able to visit our website and log into a customer-specific secure web page
When the client is logged into our system, they will have access to canned reports that have been generated from the data collected via our system at the customer's business location.
Â The data transfer performed by Transmission Control Protocol TCP generally guarantees that the data will be sent correctly to the destination end system. To accomplish this, TCP
Divides the data received from the application layer into appropriately sized packets for the network layer,
(2) Acknowledges all packets received,
(3) Sets time-outs to ensure that the destination end system acknowledges that the packets were received, and
Performs other actions to ensure that when TCP receives data from the application layer, the corresponding TCP layer on the destination end system receives that data correctly.
