Information technology increases the importance of noncontractible investments by suppliers, such as quality, responsiveness, and innovation; it is shown that when such investments are particularly important, firms will employ fewer suppliers, and this will be true even when search and transaction costs are very low.

Some features of the process, such as problem definition and construct validation, are similar to hypothesis-testing research. It is therefore vital that firms carefully consider whether or not the industry they are operating in is suitable for disintermediation to be viable. In many cases this disintermediation has gone beyond creating enhancements in the supply network, or increasing efficiency, to forever changing the business practices of the entire industry.
