Roland Weistroffer, Virginia Commonwealth University Editor-in-Chief: Sajda Qureshi, University of Nebraska at Omaha Information technology IT projects continue to suffer from frequent cost and time overruns and failure to fully deliver on the expected benefits to the users or the organization.
Furthermore, what determines the success or failure of information technology implementations and use in developing and emerging economies may differ substantially from generally accepted vcu dating factors in highly developed countries.
Developing vcu dating are defined by low gross national income per capita, and are generally characterized by low standards of living, a weak industrial and commercial base, and a poor infrastructure. Still developing economies that exhibit robust, continual economic expansion, resulting in fast growing per capita income, and which have administrations that are dedicated towards developing the commercial base and improving the infrastructure are termed emerging economies.
IT is generally considered to be a prime factor in vcu dating economic and national development of these regions.
The aim of this special issue is to provide a forum for research and practice specifically directed at the factors and models that contribute to the success or failure of IT implementation and use for economic and national development in developing and emerging economies. Submitted papers, while focusing on specific success factors or exemplary models, must explain how the vcu dating makes a contribution to better understanding the role of IT in economic or national development, affecting people's lives and their communities, Submitted work will be evaluated for methodological vcu dating, empirical completeness, and academic rigor, as well as originality and interestingness.
