Recent years have seen an unprecedented acceleration in the evolution and expansion of Internet-based service provision and inter/intra-enterprise integration in all market sectors. This brings about the prospect of ad-hoc integration of systems across organisational boundaries. Spanning national and enterprise borders, the participating entities pool resources, information and knowledge in order to achieve common objectives.
