Despite of the promising benefits of cloud computing in enabling efficient, sustainable and agile Supply Chain Collaborations (SCCs), this service does not eliminate governance challenges in SCCs. Cloud based SCCs may flounder without a proper understanding of how to govern inter-organizational relations and insight into how the cloud service will affect it. Using a case study method, this study aims to: (1) observe cloud based SCCs in practice and (2) get an overview of current governance models that exist for cloud based SCCs. Five types of company roles in cloud based SCCs are proposed to reduce ambiguity in inter-organizational communication. Using this classification, this study introduces market and shared governance for cloud based SCCs besides the hierarchical governance, Network Administrative Organization. This study's contribution is to describe how cloud is currently used to enable diversity of the SCCs' governance models.
