This paper reports on research carried out into e-business evaluation in an Australian context. The main research instrument was a questionnaire based on a similar study in the United States, which was adapted to give an Australian dimension. The survey was sent to e-business managers in a random sample of Australian companies. The paper reports some preliminary results from the analysis of the survey data. The results identify the more important ebusiness drivers, transaction capabilities, impacts on financial performance and improvement; and problems experienced during implementation.
