In today’s globally competitive marketplaces, organizations in both private and public sectors are embedded in networks of supply chain relationships with their geographically-dispersed trading partners (i.e., the suppliers and customers). Increasingly, these relationships tend to be long-term arrangements, requiring organizations to engage in supply chain collaboration. While information systems are known to enable different types of interactions, there is not a systematic examination of the information systems infrastructures that promote supply chain collaboration between organizations and their trading partners. This research seeks to break new ground in the area of supply chain collaboration by highlighting: (a) the information systems infrastructure and capabilities that would enable supply chain collaboration between organizations and their trading partners, and (b) the organizational processes and routines that would allow for successfully exploiting the information systems infrastructure and capabilities for maximizing supply chain collaboration.
