Ltd., (NETS), NOVUS Services Inc., Security First Technologies Inc., (S1), Stratus Computer Inc. and VeriSign Inc.--bring total membership of the international forum to 20 organizations.
The group launched three working groups, whose charter will be to initiate projects and formalize industry positions to address three issues it has identified as critical for the expansion of electronic commerce: infrastructure development, system interoperability and electronic-commerce adoption and education.
The Global eCommerce Forum--previously named First Global Commerce--was formed last December to serve as a leader in providing a united voice for defining and driving electronic commerce endeavors. The Partner Management Team, consisting of EDS, HP and VeriFone will provide general program management and facilitate actions among the members.
