This encyclopedia on mobile computing and commerce spans the entire nexus from mobile technology over commerce to applications and end devices. Due to the complexity of the topic, this chapter provides a structured approach to understand the interrelationship in-between the mobile computing and commerce environment. A framework will be introduced; the approach is based on the Fribourg ICT Management Framework, elaborated at our institute with input from academics and practitioners, which has been tried and tested in papers, books, and lectures on ICT management methods. For published examples, please consult Teufel (2001, 2004), Steinert and Teufel (2002, 2004), or Teufel, Götte, and Steinert (2004).
