Abstract

The 20-year economic reform in China has bred a new group of medium- or small-sized enterprises whose businesses are largely based on scientific and technological development. After China joined the World Trade Organization, these enterprises have had to seek strategies of informatization to survive and develop when facing challenges of economic globalization and rapid expansion of information technology. This paper attempts to examine in detail the necessity and importance of informatization of these enterprises within the context of China’s national economic system, identify issues crucial to the informatization process, and, by relating to the useful experience of enterprise informatization in the United States, propose some practical strategies of adopting advanced means and procedures through integration of essential information technology into enterprise management and operations.
