This chapter presents a case study of a project to inaugurate an EDI system in the financial services industry. Here the actor-network approach is deployed to analyse the formation of this electronic network between a number of financial services companies, but this is tempered by a concern to ensure that in tackling the relationship between organization and technology the issue of power/knowledge remains firmly under the spotlight.

Keywords:   information system, EDI system, financial services, actor-network approach, electronic network, organization, technology
