Abstract

This paper focuses on the how the Knowledge Transfer Partnership scheme has been used to develop and implement a technical strategy to support e-business trading by an SME dealing with the NHS and other public authorities. In this instance, the company (TPG DisableAids) decided against the introduction of new core systems but preferred instead to pursue a strategy of building e-business capabilities on legacy systems that were deficient both technologically and in terms of functional capacity. This resulted in a number of technical and business challenges that were addressed via the KTP project.
