    new Internet presence and the new e-commerce applications.

    \"We have developed DPD from a company serving domestic markets to

    with international products and fully integrated services,\" says Dr.

    About BroadVision 8.1

    BroadVision 8.1 incorporates the K2 (Kona * Kukini) methodology, a
    rapid implementation paradigm that dramatically speeds up the
    application development lifecycle, resulting in significant
    productivity improvements for customers. To help its customers harness
    these benefits, BroadVision developed the K2 Methodology, or K2M(TM),
    based on best practices accumulated from the company\'s 14-plus years
    of e-business project experience. The methodology emphasizes a
    \"time-boxed\" approach, iterated throughout all phases of a project\'s
    lifecycle. It follows the 80-20 principle, replacing much of the
    effort expended on hard coding with simpler configuration and assembly
    of reusable Kona objects and Kukini patterns. Laborious coding, which
    represents 80 percent of the work, is delegated to \"role players\" -
    freeing high-end resources to focus on the inevitable, but more
    challenging, \"one-off\" programming tasks representing 20 percent of
    the work. Field implementations of K2M have demonstrated substantial
    time-to-market gains and convincing cost savings across a wide
    spectrum of e-business initiatives.
