Abstract: This article suggests a model that extends the e-finance framework from the technology perspective and provides a basis for a more comprehensive approach to financial digitisation. Specifically, the e-finance model is comprised of four components: digital wealth creation; digital wealth collection; digital wealth management; digital wealth protection. The four components constitute the Create-Collect-Manage-Protect (CCMP) model. Extensions of Enterprise Application Integration (EAI) with CORBA (Common Object Request Broker Architecture) and web services are presented to demonstrate the value-added implications of a networked approach to business digitisation. The e-finance model offers a new view to broaden the present understanding of e-finance from the technology perspective and shapes the basis for strategic decision making.

Keywords: e-finance; enterprise application integration; e-business strategy; financial digitisation; middleware; web services; digital wealth.
