by Dinesh Thakur Category: E Commerce

Extranet refers to a group of websites, belonging to independent entities that are combined together in order to share information. This is in contrast to an intranet, which is a private site that is only accessible for employees of an entity.


Extranets are used in the supply chains to allow for more effective communications along the supply chain. They are replacing proprietary standard networks that are considerably more expensive to establish, and therefore were only used by large organizations.
