What is a "value network" and how does it differ from a "value chain"?
A value chain traditionally relates to a single chain of activities and usually applies to one firm operating in a specific industry.
A value network is multienterprise and spans over the industries of the numerous e-commerce partners that participate in an end-to-end collaboration.
This interconnected network of cooperating business partners and their relevant IT systems make up a company’s value network, and it includes closely related and essential partners like banks and other financial institutions, tax authorities, etc.
The value network also includes the numerous business processes carried out by the many collaborating partners that contribute to and make up the value network.
