One of the Internet's biggest successes has been the automation of the travel-reservation system. Travelocity, Expedia, and Orbitz have all thrived in a fickle economic sector. The key to their success is Web services, which are exploding across government and industry.

Travel sites, therefore, are federations of companies that provide services, yet maintain a separate identity outside the group. Membership in a business federation, however, usually involves much less diplomacy and political discord than a political federation. Business federations must provide security for their day-to-day operations.
