Using an Information Management Model as a Roadmap for Information Systems Implementation in Supply Networks
In the era of information overflow, the effective implementation of models for managing multiple information streams may contribute to organizations’ decision-making capabilities. Even though literature has proposed several information management models, little has been described about their implementation in real-world settings. This paper presents a case study on the usage of an information management model in the implementation of a collaborative system in a supply network. The case application analysis reinforces the value of using information management models to account for cultural aspects in the mapping of information needs and in the analysis of multiple stakeholders’ requirements.
