Abstract

Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are fuelling the growth of global economy and intelligent use of ICT is a key to transform societies. ICT is widely used in today's economies to solve a wide variety of social and economic problems. The main factor which determines the success of a high technology project in a social setting is its acceptance and usage rate, and user technology readiness is the main determinant of use intention. The study tries to explore the various factors which affect the end user technology readiness in an ICT4D context. ICT4D is defined as the design and use of ICT and E-services that consider social context and socio-economic development. An empirical analysis will be done to identify the relationships and a case study on an implemented project will be carried out to validate the model in a real setting.
