After having comprehended the value of the first few lessons, you have now come to realize the importance of making an additional investment.
With the ongoing process of building business networks in today's economy, business-to-business integration (B2B) has become a strategic tool for utilizing and optimizing information exchange between business partners. Industry has made remarkable progress in implementing and conceptualizing different kinds of electronic relationships in the last years. Nevertheless, academic findings generally focus exclusively on certain aspects of the research object, i.e.
- document standards,
- process integration or
- other descriptive criteria.
Without a common framework these results stay unrelated and their mutual impact on each other remains largely unexplained.
In this paper we explore the current state of B2B in practice. In a research project we classified real-world B2B integration projects from a pool of over 400 case studies using a pre-developed framework for integration scenarios. The result of our explorative research revealed typical patterns in the position of companies in 1) the supply chain and 2) industry sector.
In the next lesson, the learning community will be discussed.
