union of organizations for Internet commerce a partnership forged between organizations in order to achieve business objectives for enterprises conducted over the web. There has been a surge in such alliances since the Internet took off in the mid-1990s, and studies show that the most successful have been those involving traditional offline businesses and online entities, known as the clicks-and-mortar strategy, for example, that between Amazon.com and Toys ’R’ Us. Toys ’R’ Us had the physical infrastructure and brand, while Amazon.com had the online infrastructure and experience of making e-commerce work.
