Abstract:
The latter part of the 1990s saw the development of P2P technology with the launch of ‘Napster’. The main aim behind creating the Napster software was to enable users or peers on a network to swap music files. Although Napster became a worldwide phenomenon within a year of its launch, it was also held responsible for the proliferation of music piracy on the Internet. Despite Napster being forced to shut down, other services like ‘Gnutella’ and ‘Kazaa’ took over the P2P domain. Despite the negative image associated with P2P, the early 2000s saw a horde of developments that aimed at using P2P technologies to develop applications which had the power to change the nature of businesses in the New Economy.

Pedagogical Objectives:

    To discuss about the birth and growth of P2P technologies

    To highlight the latest developments in enterprise-based P2P applications

    To debate on P2P’s potential to influence businesses across the world.
