The Philippines has already embraced today’s fast-paced global economy. The worldwide advent of e-commerce has driven the Philippine business community to deal with changes in the way business is conducted–extending its reach, working to provide better services for customers, working more closely with suppliers and partners, and tapping new markets. Developments characterized by the new global economy require a shift in the management paradigm of enterprises which gives premium on competitiveness, multifunctionality, and flexibility. This requires managing the technological factors of the enterprise (managing technology and managing with technology) and managing the enterprise for controlled change and stability (Khalil, 2000).
