AbstractInterorganizational data exchange remains a challenge due to different interoperability barriers. Legal, organizational, semantic and syntactic, and technical interoperability standards vary between organizations. It is essential to have a proper insight and understanding of these barriers to be able to collaborate and exchange data between organizations in an effective way.
This case study attempts to provide a better understanding of the barriers which are impeding interorganizational data exchange. During the research the authors designed a theoretical framework which consists of four aspects and fourteen sub-aspects of interoperability barriers related to interorganizational data exchange.
The framework has been empirically tested by executing thirteen semi-structured interviews within the Ministry of Defence and two collaboration partners. This resulted in the validation of all fourteen sub-aspects.
The results show that this framework can provide organizations working with and within the military sector a better understanding of the barriers which are impeding data exchange. This on the other hand can contribute to deciding subjectively better which benefits interorganizational interoperability.
