Plates-formes collaboratives : entre évolution technologique et choix stratégique


  • Salançon, A.


The question of how information and communications technologies impact the economic development of businesses has come to the fore in recent years with the emergence of what have been called "platforms for collaborative working" or simply "collaborative platforms". This technological development has given birth to new conceptions about how economic organisations function. In real-life situations, however, the adoption of these new and innovative work mechanisms must complement and be integrated with existing stategies among actors within the organisation. The following article presents a study of one project whose aim was the creation of a collaborative work platform in the fruit and vegetable sector of the food industry. The study presents response elements to various factors which determined the emergence of collaborative platform projects, as well as responses to the strategic choices made by the actors involved in the project in building these platforms. ...French Abstract : La question de l'impact de l'usage des Tic sur le développement économique des entreprises est relancée ces dernières années avec l'émergence des dispositifs appelés "plate-formes de travail collaboratif" ou "plates-formes collaboratives". Cette évolution technologique est porteuse de nouvelles conceptions de fonctionnement des organisations économiques. Dans le même temps et dans les situations concrètes, l'adoption de ce dispositif innovant doit composer avec les stratégies d'acteurs dans lesquelles les plate-formes collaboratives tentent de prendre place. L'article présente l'étude d'un projet de création d'une plate-forme collaborative dans la filière des fruits et légumes. Elle apporte des éléments de réponse sur les facteurs déterminants l'émergence des projets de plates formes collaboratives et sur les ressorts stratégiques de leur construction de la part des acteurs impliqués dans ce projet.
