The research investigated the use of information communication technology within collaborative relationships in a multi industry cluster in Australia. The study found that collaborative business relationships were present in the cluster, however the role of ICT in these relationships was not significant due to a number of industry characteristics displayed across the cluster, such as secrecy, a high need for security and low ICT adoption.
