Different Flavours of B2BWeb Services Development
AbstractIn order to realize successful Business-to-Business integration (B2Bi) the parties involved should agree on a number of business and ICT-related issues. These agreements may be based on bilateral discussions or on proprietary or open standards. The appropriateness of using standards depends on the type of B2Bi under consideration. In this paper we argue that there exist two basic forms of B2Bi, namely Extended Enterprise integration and Market B2Bi. This paper shows that the difference between both types of integration is fundamental, discusses the consequences of the difference for the coordination of Web services development projects and the role of standards for both types of B2Bi. While open standards are the way to realize the required network effects in Market B2Bi, Extended Enterprise integration enjoys more freedom and even bilateral agreements may be used in this case.
