Systems' Integration or Organizations' Integration?

It might be interesting to view Systems Integration work through the lens of organizational behavior. A typical vendor-client relationship between two firms is pretty unambiguous, easy to operationalize. A client organization engages a vendor for either upstream or downstream work; the vendor does it in its own setup and delivers to the client organization. The client organization evaluates the performance of the vendor, at times providing an incentive, and this easily fits into the overall supply chain with few adjustments on either side (vendor or client). Neither party is threatened in this setup.
