What Changes?

Perhaps not everything as Larry Ellison's quote intimates. As indicated on pages 164 onwards, some things, like "knowing your customer" are as important as ever. Only the methods change. It still amazes me how many organizations run websites, where the managers and professional do not get just basic statsitics and not the web analytics that would provide much more informative data for decision making. The notion of a multi-channel strategy (where the channels are aware of what each other is doing) - see pages 182-184 - is now much more prevalent.
