This article intends to contribute to a better understanding of the role that technologies may play within the fields of organizational operations, namely the formulation of competitive strategies. The aim of these considerations is to adopt an adequate and critical perspective of the relationships among different technologies and strategic efforts in order to recognize that information technologies are needed to obtain higher levels of understanding competitors’ movements and to enhance organizations’ performance. Moreover, by considering that information technologies are related extensively with strategic decisions, it attempts to provide useful insights on knowledge management and technologies effectiveness. Continued research relating information technology and technological networks to organizations’ performance is needed to explain management efficiency’s levels.
