Business alliances are becoming ubiquitous globally. We are studying agent and multiagent tasks in electronic commerce, representative of normal business functioning. Our work is a study of the need for management functions in agent and multiagent tasks in electronic commerce. We observed and documented management tasks among multiagent networks and recommended specific roles for management that may be applied to business alliances.
