How does Information Technology alter Porter's 5 Forces

It may affect Porter's 5 Forces but not totally, considering that there are inherent factors which cannot be manipulated digitally. Any outcome will be an assumption; which may not be absolute. So, it takes a lot of understanding of the environment for which the 5 forces model is applied.

The dynamics of the forces may be changed

The 5 competitive fundamental forces do not change with IT. They remain the same. However: IT may change the dynamics of these forces. What IT does is listed below:
1. It can make information available at higher speed.
2. As a tool it provides speed and accuracy in preparation, processing and analysis of available data.
3. When applied in an industry it can lead to transformation or innovation of processes. This may provide competitive advantage to the firm either in terms of cost reduction or by disruptive innovation.
