What does B2B integration mean?

Can you explain what is meant by B2B integration? Can you give an example of what is being integrated? The question...

is vague because B2B has been co-opted by so many marketing campaigns. Business-2-Business integration means data flow across the corporate firewall. Anything currently done by hand and by mail can eventually be automated. Successful examples of B2B include web site traffic that takes that place of Fax machines and telephones. However, B2B will really come into its own with the advent of Web Services. That's because applications will begin to connet to other applications. See www.avantrust.com for an example in trade credit insurance. xmethods.net is a listing of Web Services that also supplies excellent food for thought.
