An IOS is an information and management system that transcends organizational boundaries via electronic linkages with its trading partners. The electronic linkage is established by information and communication technologies. Extranets[1 ]are the core technology for building IOSs. There are a host of other technologies that serve as the infrastructure for managing IOSs. They include coordination technologies, monitoring technologies, filtering and negotiating technologies (intelligent agents), and decision-making and knowledge-management technologies. In this chapter, a brief overview of each of these technologies is presented.

[1 ]Part of this chapter, extranets, is largely based on the earlier publication, Eom, S. B. (2001). Business-to-business networks. In M. Warner (Ed.), International encyclopedia of business and management (2 ed.; pp. 589– 602). London: Thomson Learning. With permission from Thomson Learning.
