It depends on who's using the term. See the following older threads for some discussion around the subject:

In my humble opinion, integration testing is testing the changed or new application with it's immediate system neighbours e.g. if you had a new barcode scanning device in a warehouse system, then integration testing might be testing it against whatever sends data to it and whatever receives it's data. System testing would be testing the whole chain of events that included the barcode reader e.g. The entire ordering, warehousing and dispatch operations.
