America Online, Vienna, Va., announced formation of a business-to-business division, America Online Enterprise, Monday. The division markets "private AOLs" that bring to business environments the same consumer based services individuals use. The intranet-based services let authorized users inside or outside companies e-mail, do real-time conferencing, consult proprietary or other databases, and check news. Mortgage information exchange MixStar-The Lender Connection was the first company to use AOL Enterprise. Harvard Business School, CNN, and Century 21 have also built private areas on AOL Enterprise.
