What can you do with an eSpace Client (e. g. Web-Browser) within an eSpace?
  • Navigate
  • Perform actions- Use functionality of the respective eBusiness application
  • Order goods
  • Check account balance
  • Fill in profile information (Personalization)
  • Create discussion topics

Important things a user should think about when using eBusiness applications:
  • How is access to private data protected?
  • What is the privacy policy of the vendor and how does the company treat my private data?
  • Which security architectures does the application offer?
  • Is encryption used to protect sensitive data?
  • Which functionality does the application offer and do I need this functionality?
  • How does navigation work? E. g. is the maintenance of bookmarks possible. Do i know how to find relevant information?
  • Is it possible to contribute to the functionality. E. g. by creating discussion contributions?
  • Can text be formatted?
  • Can files be uploaded?
  • Is it possible to edit contributions?

What is the bottleneck/critical production factor in modern electronic work and office environments?
  • The bottleneck is not the physical resources (hardware, bandwidth etc.). The bottleneck is the e-worker's capability to organize information and bring it into context.
