This paper proposes a collaborative environment that allows the performance measurement of a supply chain (as well as its constituent links) in the current business environment, which is characterized by competitiveness, turbulence and globalization of the markets. The proposed indices are generic and their adaptation to different supply chains is straightforward. The cloud technologies are analyzed from the perspective of the assets that can promote them as a support for the proposed evaluation model. The analysis of the requirements of the proposed collaborative organizational model, results in a flexible data model (also presented). The usefulness of the concept is demonstrated with the development of a software prototype in the Amazon EC2 cloud infrastructure.
