Competition among organizations supports initiatives and collaborative use of data while creating value based on the strategy and best performance of each data supply chain. Supporting this direction, and building on the theoretical background of the supply chain, we propose the Data Supply Chain (DSC) as a novel concept to aid investigations for data-driven collaboration impacting organizational performance. In this study we initially propose a definition for the DSC paying particular attention to the need for collaboration for the supply chains of data. Furthermore, we develop a conceptual model of DSC collaboration coupling theoretical background of strategy and operations literature including, the resource-based view (RBV), supply chain management (SCM) and collaboration (SCC). Finally, we set propositions and a future research agenda including testing and validating the model fit.
