The term was also used back in 2001 in the piece about that Data Ownership Extends Outside the Enterprise. Here on the blog it was included in the title of the post about Interenterprise Data Sharing and the 2016 Data Quality Magic Quadrant.

In my eyes interenterprise data sharing is closely related to how you can achieve business benefits from taking part in the ecosystem flavor of a digital business platform. Some of the data types where we will see such business ecosystem platform flourish will be around sharing product model master data and data about and coming from things related to the Internet of Things (IoT) theme.
