Abstract

Environment related factors often constrain the utilization of information technologies (IT) in developing countries such as Pakistan. Data from a number of field case studies has been used to identify the major environmental constraints that influence the IT introduction and utilization process. A model has been developed to identify the main dimensions whose interaction determines the effectiveness of IT utilization by a given organization. This model also explains the manner in which these dimensions, and their interplay, is influenced by the environmental constraints. The key dimensions whose congruence is essential for successful introduction and utilization of IT are also discussed. Measures for overcoming these environmental constraints are also presented.
