This book focuses on the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on organizations and society as a whole. Specifically, it examines how such technologies improve our lives and facilitate our work. A main aspect explored is how actors understand the potential of ICTs to support organizational activities and hence, how they adopt and adapt these technologies to achieve their goals. The book collects papers on various areas of organizational strategy, e.g. new business models, competitive strategies, knowledge management and more. The main areas dealt with are new technologies for a better life, innovations for e-government, and technologies enhancing enterprise modeling. In addition, the book addresses how organizations impact society through sustainable development and social responsibility, and how ICTs employ social media networks in the process of value co-creation.

This book examines the role that Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) play in growth and economic development promotion, specifically for developing countries. It highlights multiple methodologies for quantifying the impact of ICTs. This includes quantitative and qualitative methods, but also novel, conclusive and informative methodological approaches for measuring ICTs influence on economic development. The book highlights trends, perspectives, and success stories for different developing countries. ICTs bring new business models, innovations, capital-labor substitution, improved goods and services to developing markets. Because they can spread rapidly, with little cost and require minimal skills for usage, ICTs create a solid background for social and economic gains. They enable significant reduction in information asymmetries, which improves access to economic activities for multitude of agents, fostering participation, inter alias in labor market of disadvantaged societal groups. After almost two decades of rapid diffusion of ICT in developing world, this book seeks to assess the real benefits and consequences of ICTs adoption in developing countries. The chapters use broad, real-world based evidence to provide a better understanding of the precise nature of new technologies and their impact of the country`s economy and society.

This book is a revised version of a Ph.D. dissertation in which the author presents the results of a comprehensive evaluation of ICT4D initiatives in three Sub Saharan Africa countries. Its starting-point is the apparent failure of ICT4D initiatives in Sub Saharan Africa to deliver for human development goals. As a result, there has been a growing demand for more rigorous empirical evidence about the ways in which individuals and communities exploit access to and use of ICT, and the impact they have on the livelihoods of marginalized communities in rural and urban areas. The lack of empirical evidence in this area inhibits effective analysis of the factors enabling or constraining ICT4D initiatives outcomes and means that scarce development resources may be ineffectively deployed or opportunities for effective pro-poor initiatives are being missed, and it is one of the key aims of this book to explore the key critical success factors for making ICT work for pro-poor development in Sub Saharan Africa.Using a comprehensive quantitative and qualitative design, this evaluation study examined the promise of ICT to deliver for human development goals at the macro, meso and micro-level over a decade (1995-2006) in Ethiopia, Kenya and South Africa. The exploration was carried out using new hybrid evaluation framework called a Capability Oriented Logical Framework Approach (CO-LFA) that was developed by the author. This framework places, in contrast to the current discourse around the digital divide, pro-poor sustainable development and not technology at the centre of the analysis.Findings from the study clearly conform the central hypothesis that access to and use of ICT in Sub-Saharan Africa often fail to meet pro-poor development goals, because they are impaired by deficiencies in the enabling environment that are systematically embedded in the broader socio-economic context of the targeted communities. The author draws conclusions that may have implications for making ICT work for pro-poor development, in terms of assumptions, approaches and outcomes.

This authoritative landmark text examines the highly topical and important issue of ICT in literacy learning. Its distinctive focus on providing a systematic review of research in the field gives the reader an essential, comprehensive overview. As governments worldwide continue to invest heavily in ICT provisions in educational institutions, this book addresses the need to gather and synthesise evidence about the impact of ICT on literacy learning. An expert team of writers draw upon two recent reports by the Organisation for Economic Co-Operation and Development, which highlighted the considerable differences between nations in the access and use of ICT, to take a discursive and expansive look at the subject. Within its wide range and scope, chapters cover areas on: * the history of literacy and ICT * evidence for the effectiveness of ICT on literacy learning * the impact of networked ICT on literacy learning * the relationship between verbal and visual literacies. This book will be an invaluable and informative read with international resonance for student teachers, teachers, academics and researchers worldwide.

Information and communication technology ICT in organizations has many faces, such as office automation, production automation, telecommunication and electronic networks connecting organizations. The "C" in "ICT" refers to the fact that, besides information processing technologies, a rapid growth can be found in computer-assisted communication technologies and computer-supported co-operative work. Organizations change as a result of socio-economic and technological developments. New organizational forms and work arrangements are emerging, and ICT is adapted and designed to solve problems caused by these changes. The impact of the introduction of ICT becomes apparent in changes in work patterns, qualifications and decision-making procedures. In this special issue, the implementation processes and some of the consequences are discussed, mostly on the basis of empirical studies.; Contributions include: a discussion of recent developments of ICT and organizational change in the banking sector; an analysis of the introduction of technological innovation in the ambulance service in several big cities; and an illustration of the different options in introduction strategies, including methods used to facilitate user participation in systems development. In some cases, so-called business re-engineering processes form the framework for the analysis.

The digitisation of the economy is one of the most important drivers behind the profound transformation of the labour market and the way people work, which is thought likely to become even more significant in the years to come. This new paradigm represents a major challenge for employers, workers and public authorities, and the challenges needs to be fully understood in order to identify the most appropriate policy options to transform them into opportunities for all. This study "ICT for Work: Digital skills in the workplace", launched by The European Commission, DG CONNECT, and carried out by Ecorys and Danish Technological Institute in 2015-2016 has been conceptualised and implemented in order to examine the transformation of jobs in the digital economy in the European Union, investigating the penetration of digital technologies into workplaces, the digital skills required by employers and the digital skills currently available in workplaces. In this light, an employers’ survey and qualitative interviews on the impact of ICT on job quality have been carried out. Rooted in an extensive review of academic and scientific literature, existing surveys and data from other statistical sources, this study aims to fill existing research gaps. This report presents findings from the study.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Business economics - Economic Policy, grade: 1,5, Technical University of Ilmenau (Institut für Wirtschaftswissenschaften), 43 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: This paper discusses the relevance of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) for economic growth in developing economies. By reviewing the contributions from the neoclassical and endogenous growth theory and empiric evidences for the link between ICT and economic growth, the paper clearly concludes that ICTs facilitate economic growth, principally by providing incentives for capital deepening and increasing productivity through rapid technological progress. However, the impact on growth is more extensive from the long-term ICT use and networking that though requires appropriate ICT investment and complementary efforts in order that spillovers and productivity improvements are triggered and exploited totally. This paper derives the key determinants and interacting factors that, in the corresponding correct synergic combination, promote ICT’s impact on growth-generating processes. For a variety of reasons, the states of these factors in developing countries provide a less ICT favourable environment for taking advantage from ICTs. These economies exhibit a lower stock of human capacities and per capita capital to trigger the productivity benefits from the ICT use. Therefore, the level of effort is higher than in the developed world to receive return on ICT investment. However, when they achieve to attract capital and knowledge by encouraging ICT investment and technology transfer supported by international openness, maintained financial and institutional systems, deregulation of markets and higher competition, they have the chance to benefit from adopting best practices and technologies from the industrialized world with complementary efforts in the reorganisation of business organisations and processes and enhanced human ICT-skills and management.

Information and communications technology (ICT) has become a key driver of economic growth in recent years, particularly with developments in the internet, of mobile telephony and of broadband networks. Using available OECD data, this report considers measures of e-commerce and ICT diffusion, the role and impact of ICT investment and the role of ICT-using and ICT-producing sectors in overall economic performance; and contains nine case studies on the effects of ICT in individual countries, using detailed firm-level data. The report highlights the impact of ICT on the success of individual firms, in particular when it is combined with investment in skills, organisational change and innovation. It also examines why there is a gap in ICT impact between performance of individual firms and aggregate performance and growth levels at the sectoral or economy-wide level.
