Abstract

Information and communication technologies (ICT) hold the promise of accelerating growth and improving the quality of life of many people around the world, particularly in the developing countries. Since the Internet became available for commercial use in the early 1990s, virtually all countries of the world, even the least developed, have had some form of Internet access. [Talero & Gaudette, 1996] Extensive studies have been conducted by commercial organisations in order to assess the e-readiness of developed countries but only limited work has been done to assess the progress towards e-readiness in developing countries. This is especially so in the Arab nations, although such studies are arguably more important given the currently low levels of development in these countries. This paper presents the finding of the interviews and concentrates on the results of those interviews within the both public and private organisations in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
