Collaboration in Cloud Businesses - Value Networks and Ecosystems
Cloud computing businesses are coined by broad and intense company collaboration. There is a growing need for clarification of the types of collaborative structures. In this paper, the authors draw on existing scientific discussions from the fields of value networks and business ecosystems and provide a typology of organisational collaboration concepts for the cloud computing business. By suggesting a distinction between Cloud Value Networks and Cloud Ecosystems this paper lays the foundation for a more precise scholarly discussion on organisational collaboration.
