SAP, eBay Setup Industrial B2B Marketplace

from the if-you-can't-beat-'em dept

It was just a few years ago that Gartner was predicting that there would be over 10,000 different “B2B marketplaces” out there letting companies buy and sell anything they wanted. A few years (and one big bubble crash) later, what are we left with? eBay. SAP has announced that it’s going to just tie their systems into eBay instead of creating various B2B marketplaces for their customers to use. Yet another example of the “winner take all society” in action.
