This IDC study describes the Partnering Collaboration Framework, a framework of 10 business functions and 4 collaboration levels that describes how channel partners can create successful and repeatable working partnerships with other channel partners.

"IDC believes that P2P collaboration is even more important than ever in the era of the 3rd Platform. Solution providers that want to leverage their skills with mutually beneficial relationships should use the Partnering Collaboration Framework to understand their company's own readiness to partner and to evaluate companies with which they might partner." -- Marilyn Carr, director, Software Channels Research
