Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Following is the example of process of di intermediation in ERP of e-commerce 

The disintermediation caused by e-commerce has affected long-established business channels. Although some third parties have been eliminated altogether, many continue to survive because their services bring real value to the business world. Warehousing, inventory management, storage, and shipping, which collectively fall under the umbrella of logistics, are examples of valuable services offered by intermediaries. Rather than cutting them out of the picture, some manufacturers also have asked third-party business partners to change their focus and provide training or consulting services to customers, thereby becoming value-added services while leaving the selling processes to the companies themselves. Finally, some companies were able to successfully sell both directly and through traditional distributor channels. Herman Miller Inc., a manufacturer of office furniture, used this approach by selling directly to home office users (a market its dealers didn't target), and through dealers to larger corporate accounts. Part of the company's philosophy, which it communicated through regular meetings with dealers, was that home office users might eventually evolve into larger corporate accounts.
