EXPLORING INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATIONS TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION IN ENTERPRISES AND ITS IMPACT ON INNOVATION PERFORMANCE OF EUROPEAN COUNTRIES
Languages of publication
This article analyses whether there are differences in information and communications technology (ICT) adoption among enterprises in European countries (full EU members, candidate and other countries) according to the ranking of countries at the Innovation Union Scoreboard (IUS) list. According to the results, countries from different innovation level groups differ according to: (1) adoption of the internal processes support within information systems, (2) adoption of e-Commerce and CRM, and (3) adoption of broadband and LAN. Since the Digital Agenda goals are oriented primarily towards closing the digital gap among individuals, the EU should also address active fostering of ICT adoption in enterprises in order to further improve their innovative capacity.
