Description : Business managers in developing countries would find in this volume a solid background to e-commerce at large, and to its significance within a wider framework of a resource-based view of their business and of the national economic settings within which they operate. The book is of special importance to the academic community of Internet students, as well as for those interested in economic development, by providing a pioneering insight into the issue of e-commerce in developing countries which may emerge strongly in the upcoming years. Aharon Kellerman, Growth and Change Undoubtedly an important contribution. E-commerce is a technology which holds the possibility of levelling the global trading playing field. This book provides a necessary review of current issues in e-commerce in developing economies, and a useful collection of good practice and solid theory for scholars, policymakers and professionals. John Peters, Emerald Group Publishing Limited, UK This is a road map of some of the challenges governments and companies face, in terms of physical and human infrastructure, as countries wrestle with a rapidly changing commercial environment. As the virtual world conquers ever more of the material world, countries that adapt and adopt to a cyber reality will likely do better. If you are doing business or setting policy in a developing country, you want to understand and address the issues raised in this book. Juan Enriquez, CEO, Biotechonomy, US and author of The Untied States of America and As the Future Catches You The authors of this unique volume provide a timely and valuable perspective on how technology and the Internet revolution are changing business and spurring development across the world, especially in emerging countries. Utilizing a framework grounded in rigorous theory, they provide a fine-grained understanding of electronic commerce adoption processes by public and private sector entities in developing countries. In so doing, they consider how each exchange encounter is shaped by, and in turn shapes, relational characteristics that form the basis for growth and development. Using a resource-based view of economies, the authors hypothesize that differences in the adoption of electronic commerce technologies in developing economies can be attributed to a sense-and-respond capability of governments with respect to new technologies, which they term technological opportunism . One of their main objectives is to establish the distinctiveness of technology opportunities from related constructs, such as innovativeness, and show that it offers a significantly better explanation of technology adoption and diffusion than do existing constructs. The book examines a number of developing countries experiences with electronic government, bringing real life experience to the adoption of an e-government model by looking at the issue from strategic as well as operational perspectives. The volume s ground-breaking research and conclusions will be of great interest to professionals, researchers and students in the areas of e-commerce and economic development; government officials of developing and newly industrialized countries contemplating e-government initiatives; and information technology managers.

Description : This timely and important book illuminates the impact of cyber law on the growth and development of emerging and developing economies. Using a strong theoretical framework firmly grounded in resource-based and technology diffusion literature, the authors convey a subtle understanding of the ways public and private sector entities in developing and emerging countries adopt cyber space processes. This book reveals that the diffusion of cyber activities in developing and emerging economies is relatively low, with the main stumbling blocks resting in regulatory, cultural, and social factors. The authors argue that cyber crimes constitute a prime obstacle to the diffusion of e-commence and e-governments in developing economies, and governments have an important role in developing control mechanisms in the form of laws. However, setting appropriate policies and complementary services, particularly those affecting the telecommunications sector and other infrastructure, human capital and the investment environment, severely constrains Internet access. Using both strategic and operational perspectives, the authors discuss the concrete experience of constructing and implementing cyber laws and cyber security measures in developing and emerging countries, and analyse their content and appropriateness. Professionals, academics, students, and policymakers working in the area of cyber space, e-commerce and economic development, and United Nations entities working closely with the Millennium Development Goals, will find this book an invaluable reference.

Description : The ubiquitous nature of e-commerce in developing countries demands an innovative conceptualisation of its adoption and post-adoption that responds to various contextual circumstances. Despite efforts made to investigate e-commerce adoption in developing countries, the literature suggests that the focus is mostly on a single perspective of a single adoption stage and concentrates on specific locations. To extend our understanding of the phenomenon, an exploratory phase is undertaken through a literature review as well as an exploratory investigation. Consequently, a holistic framework is integrated that includes organisational and environmental factors, in addition to innovation attributes. The framework is empirically validated using a statistically representative sample size of 384 enterprises of various sizes and industries in a high-income developing country from a poorly investigated region. The empirical analysis shows that perceived benefits as well as mimetic pressure are more influential for the adoption of e-commerce and scope of use than the utilisation amongst adopter organisations. In addition to coercive pressure, the readiness of financial institutions, IT industry and the government affect the scope of e-commerce use. For adopter firms, the extent of e-commerce adoption is influenced by business process readiness, government readiness and security. Commitment, especially from top managers, is a key determinant that links e-commerce adoption to the extent of adoption and the scope of e-commerce use. The findings indicate that the proposed models are sufficiently reliable in discriminating not only adopters from non-adopters, but also the extent of adoption and use across the value chain. Together, this research offers a multi-perspective framework of e-commerce adoption and post-adoption in high-income developing countries and identifies the factors that affect e-commerce adoption, and how these effects vary across adoption stages. It presents insight into various issues that influence e-commerce adoption and post-adoption in this little-explored region, which will be of interest to researchers, practitioners and policy makers.

Description : Diploma Thesis from the year 2004 in the subject Business economics - Marketing, Corporate Communication, CRM, Market Research, Social Media, grade: 1,3, University of Northampton, 85 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: CHAPTER ONE INTRODUCTION Information services and products today constitute one of the world’s largest economic sectors. Computers and the networks that connect them have become a dominant force in virtually all aspects of society throughout the industrialized world. Institutions and individuals alike are flocking to the Internet - particularly to the World Wide Web - in record numbers, making it the fastest-growing medium in human history (Baptista, 2000). First made available to the public in 1992, the Web is used today by 205 countries and regions and its user number is expanding at approximately 30 percent per year (OECD, 2002). Technological improvement as well as the declining prices for the access of this technology has led to the explosive growth of Internet during the last few years. The electronic commerce (e-commerce), as one of the most important applications of the Internet technology, is undoubtedly bringing countries together to create a global network economy with expectation of reducing transition costs, increasing market transparency and making business more efficient. However, e-commerce is unevenly diffused in different countries. New growth theory (Ohmae (1996); Solomon & Bamossy (2002) insists that national characteristics such as industry structure, information infrastructure, financial systems and national policies, influence technology diffusion and innovation outcomes unevenly. E-commerce via Internet is said to have no national borders, however, individuals and companies in different countries response differently to it. Hence, understanding adoption drivers and inhibitors of e-commerce diffusion is becoming increasingly important. [...]

Description : Are the Internet and e-commerce truly revolutionizing business practice? This book explodes the transformation myth by demonstrating that the Internet and e-commerce are in fact being adapted by firms to reinforce their existing relationships with customers, suppliers, and business partners. Detailed case studies of eight countries show that, rather than creating a borderless global economy, e-commerce strongly reflects existing local patterns of commerce, business, and consumer preference, and its impact therefore varies greatly by country. Paradoxically, while e-commerce is increasing the efficiency, effectiveness, and competitiveness of firms, it is also increasing the complexity of their environments as they have to deal with more business partners and also face greater competition from other firms. This incisive analysis of the diffusion and impact of e-business provides academic researchers, graduates, and MBA students with a solid basis for understanding its likely evolution.

Description : This research examines in the global environment, the influence of national environmental factors on the diffusion and growth of e-commerce in different countries. This study wants to help government and business to understand the pattern and the driving forces behind e-commerce diffusion. The research purpose is to investigate how key factors such as national culture, socio-economic development, infrastructure, and government regulations impact e-commerce development. It is especially important for developing countries to understand these forces to become a successful player in the global market place. The cross national research will contribute to the literature on e-commerce global diffusion, with an emphasis on advancing the scholarship of e-commerce readiness in different economies. The study finds out that strong institutional environments serve as a foundation for e-commerce growth opportunities. From a marketing perspective, to be aware of and sensitive to cultural differences is a major requirement for success in the e-marketplace.

Description : The increasing use of Internet and the potential of e-commerce give rise to important policy issues relating to both national economic policy and multilateral rules of international trade. Motivated by the argument that the liberalization commitments made at the World Trade Organization (WTO) may have a major impact on the e-commerce development, this research aims to investigate the relationship between WTO commitments and e-commerce diffusion in developing countries by using China’s coastal urban area as a case study. Taking critical realism as the underlying philosophy, the research develops two process models to answer the research questions. The model at the lower level focuses on the single process of how the WTO commitments can affect an individual infrastructural sector related to e-commerce. It was developed by analyzing the four most important e-commerce input sectors: telecommunications, banking, logistics and express delivery, and information technology (IT). The model at the higher level is a network combining the processes at the lower level, examining the overall effects of WTO commitments on e-commerce diffusion. Nine propositions were made from the higher-level model. Conclusions are drawn from outcomes in verifying these propositions. The WTO commitments are found to have indirect effects on liberalization in telecommunications, banking, and logistics and express delivery services. Improvements in these sectors have made information infrastructure and commercial services less important barriers to e-commerce than other issues. In addition, the WTO commitments have directly boosted Chinese enterprises' interest in e-commerce adoption and positively affected the taxation policy on e-commerce. All these have positively influenced e-commerce diffusion in China, while the effects of the WTO commitments on IT product imports, computer and related services, intellectual property rights (IPRs) protection, and educational services have not been evident. This research is the first study to use a specific case to examine the WTO rules in the context of e-commerce diffusion. It has implications for both research and practice. First, by examining the interactions between the external pressure from multilateral agreements and internal forces of domestic institutions, the research investigates the actual process of how the impacts of the WTO rules can be materialized. Second, the thesis confirms the argument that while the socio-economic challenges to e-commerce are difficult to surmount, the path to reducing regulatory barriers is clearer and the benefits quicker to observe. Government action is critical to removing these impediments to electronic commerce.

Description : 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.

Description : With the creation and worldwide diffusion of the Internet since the end of the last century, social and economic relations have seen a strong tendency to move from analog to digital, generating new ways of performing everyday tasks. In going digital, commerce has found a new channel of communication between client and company. E-commerce was created with the characteristics of a new technology which has been widely adopted and diffused in nearly all regions, societies and cultures. However, like all innovations within a social system, there have been differences in its adoption that could be linked to inequalities in access and use. This research focuses on analysing the adoption and diffusion of e-commerce in the developing Latin American country of Colombia. It focuses on Colombia because of the low number of large studies that have been conducted there, despite the great development of the Internet and ICTs in the country. This study applies in parallel two lines of research - on one hand, it validates the UTAUT2 technological acceptance model for different types of e-commerce; on the other hand, it develops an index that measures the digital divide by country, finally analysing the two results to establish if the level of digital divide is linked to behavior in the adoption of e-commerce. The work contains four sections that give rise to the chapters of this thesis in order of appearance: introduction, state of the issue, publications that respond to the objectives, and conclusions and future lines of research. The introductory chapter justifies the relevance of the research in addition to setting the objectives and methodology of the work. The second chapter is the state of the issue, which addresses the main models of e-commerce adoption, as well as the digital divide. Having defined the models and the methodological criteria, the third chapter includes the publications that respond to the objectives, within them the whole empirical process of the research is collected as well as the main results which have gone through the rigorous process of scientific publication in magazines indexed in the Scopus, in their majority. Finally, chapter four contains the main conclusions of the work, as well as possible future lines of research. The results of this doctoral thesis have been valuable, since there were clear indications of the moderating effect of the digital divide on the adoption of e-commerce, which will help those at a business and governmental level to further understand, improve and develop e -commerce in this type of country.

Description : In today’s society, where technology is ubiquitous, protecting ourselves with firewalls is as important as defending ourselves with firepower. New technology is providing criminals with a world of opportunity, while law enforcement agencies all over the world are struggling to cope. E-security is an issue of global importance. In many ways, cybercrime is no different to more traditional types of crime – both involve identifying targets, using surveillance and psychological profiling of potential victims. The major difference is that the perpetrators of cybercrime are increasingly remote to the scene of their crime and that in some cases their victims may not even realize that a crime is taking place. Knowledge of the techniques being used by criminals and the technology and tra- ing available to combat them is essential in fighting cybercrime. Establishing dialogue between crime-fighting agencies, the security industry, researchers and experts can provide a platform from which e-security can be examined from several global p- spectives.

Description : Private enterprises in advanced economies have been learning to use information and communication technology (ICT) to innovate and transform their processes, products, services and business models, significantly improving productivity and competitiveness. Moreover, the ICT industry itself has become a major source of job creation and a contributor to economic growth and business transformation. A key question today is whether and how developing countries can learn to benefit from the ICT revolution, and what roles the government and private sector can play. Already, a number of developing countries have been inspired by the example of India and China, and are now seeking to jump on the outsourcing bandwagon. Nevertheless, with few exceptions in the developing world, little attention has been paid by policymakers and practitioners to invest systematically and proactively in ICT-enabled growth, poverty reduction and grassroots innovation. Most communities and small and medium-sized enterprises in developing countries, for example, face multiple constraints to adopting and leveraging this general purpose technology, and lack the capabilities for maximizing its potential. In "Enabling Enterprise Transformation", Nagy Hanna draws on his rich experience of over 35 years at the World Bank and other aid agencies as a development strategist and ICT policy expert, the most current research, and best practices from around the world to provide practical tools for promoting economic and social transformation through ICT. He assesses various initiatives to develop and diffuse ICT, such as innovation funds, incubators, parks, public-private partnerships, and comprehensive promotion programs. He argues for the strategic options now open for developing countries to participate in ICT production, to deploy ICT to transform industries and services, and to leverage ICT as a new national infrastructure for improving the business environment and enhancing the competitiveness of the whole economy. The challenge for leaders in developing countries is to create such social and institutional dynamics for learning about ICT use and adaptation at many levels. Lessons gained so far from programs to build these social learning and innovation capabilities at the institutional and grassroots levels should be shared among developing countries, and a dialogue among business leaders, policymakers, development agencies, educational institutions, and the general citizenry must be advanced.
