Many developing countries are waking up to the potential of information technology and the role it can play in accelerating the pace of development. This book reports on the situation in various countries, looking at the problems and at successful strategies, methodologies and procedures. The papers are organized in three sections. The first includes six papers which discuss a theoretical framework for developing and implementing information systems in a developing country context. The next section of five papers presents the country reports covering many aspects of computerization in these countries. The third section includes five papers which present a regional/comparative status of computer use in selected countries, three papers that deal with framework/specific applications in some sectors, and finally two papers focusing on the software industry and ergonomics.
