In future, information products in electronic commerce setting will be subjected to the same quality/service standards found in traditional industries. Furthermore, each user views quality such as on-time delivery, correctness, and completeness differently and values information differently. In order to recognize customized requirements, real-time databases are required in electronic commerce. Since an economic paradigm is implicit in electronic commerce, we need to integrate economic issues into managing real-time databases. An appropriate priority pricing mechanism can potentially increase collective benefits and simplify database functions such as deadline assignment, admission control, scheduling, buffer management, and data management. We discuss these emerging issues and provide an information services framework.
