According to Hakansson and Snehota “no enterprise is an island”. Technology external relationships are an important strategic consideration for amplifying internal capabilities and skills. One benefit is the synergy effects upon value and cost, i.e., increased value through increased quality and reduced cost through sharing resources and learning curves. The networking potential of external relationships, leading to cascading positive impacts, is another result of external technological relationships. 

Studies of four hundred and ninety-two enterprises showed a relevance of technology-oriented relationships to an enterprise’s innovation capabilities.
