From the Paper:

"The greatest contribution of the Internet to supply chain management is the ability to synchronize demand management between suppliers, buyers, manufactures and distribution channel partners. This has created more efficient and transparent cross-supplier collaboration globally (Dyer, Nobeoka, 2000) in addition to creating more visibility multiple layers deep into a supply chain as well. In effect the Internet has enabled an entirely new level of supply chain visibility to the process level as well, which has made for a greater potential for cost reduction over time. The cumulative effect on supply chains is that they have become more demand-driven given this level of visibility down to the supplier level made possible by the Internet (Hadaya, Cassivi, 2007)."
