IT Strategy: Does IT Matter?


This paper presents results from investment in IT at a macro economic level. Proof positive that IT Matters? You decide.

Abstract This paper examines the factors influencing investment in information technology (IT), and the payoffs from investment in IT use on productivity and economic growth in twelve Asia-Pacific countries for the period 1984-1990. It finds a significant positive correlation between growth in IT investment and growth in both GDP and productivity over the seven year period. Countries with higher growth rates in IT investment achieved consistently higher growth rates of GDP and productivity. This finding is consistent with the notion of IT-led development. It challenges the so-called "productivity paradox", or the notion that investment in IT has not paid off in productivity improvements.
