Under the impact of internet, many promises of e-management are provided. However, so far, executives are still skeptical in developing e-management platform, the anxieties come from the fact that too many IT developing projects failed. In practice, IT is a specialty which is quite heterogeneous to business management, to achieve e-management makes the issue of integration of these two domains can not be neglected any more.
A failed project is by no means the duty of IT team only; it would be the reason that the interaction between IT team and executives is too weak. To reduce the gaps in platform developing, executives have some missions are offered, they are: a. Let IT group understand executives’ business affairs; b. Review architecture of platform; c. Involve to system test. It deserves to assert that, in developing an e-management platform, executives are not just the users, but also a part of developing members.
