This paper explores the conceptual challenges of inter-organisational systems from a socio-technical perspective. It introduces the concept of information communications (IC) system paradigm as distinct from the conventional data processing and distribution (DPD) systems paradigm as a requirement to support multiorganisational partnerships based on shared intentions in the face of complexities of sharing data and information between organisations.
