A Survey of Technology Usage by Businesses in Regional Thailand
MetadataShow full item record
This paper reports the preliminary results of an exploratory survey of information technology usage by businesses located in regional Thailand. With growing concern about the digital divide, Thailand is an important and interesting region to study. There has been very little prior research that has examined the take-up of information technology in this region. The research context for this study is particularly important for two reasons. Firstly, Thailand is considered a rapidly developing country in the Asia Pacific region and, secondly, the regional area of Chiang Mai where the survey was conducted has a population of less than 5% of that of Bangkok the capital of Thailand. The results of this study show a high rate of technology acceptance and use. The findings also indicate that the Internet has achieved wide acceptance as a means of doing business.
