Modern enterprise inter-connectivity should also enable a market for third-party value-added information resellers. Resellers can offer integrated information products, made out of information sourced dynamically from multiple heterogeneous enterprise information resources. The Internet Marketplace is an information infrastructure designed for this environment. In this paper we address the design of inter-enterprise information systems by introducing a UML architectural template for services and applications built on the Internet Marketplace information infrastructure. The template is applied to a particular case study, involving a federation of state and local government agencies. The Internet Marketplace Template addresses some of the unique constraints of this type of application, offering application designers a tool for modelling and designing inter-enterprise applications that make use of the information infrastructure.
