Abstract — Information and communication technology (ICT) generates rapid changes of business processes throughout the world, especially in developing counties. Basis of ICT development is composed of ICT infrastructure, ICT hardware, software & information system, and people. ICT strategies and ICT plans should be evaluated to align with organization visions and missions in order to achieve effective use of ICT in their businesses. The present readiness assessment tools called E-readiness assessment tools and models have been developed and are used for large scale organizations or at country level. These tools, however, still have limitations and are un-suitable for small and medium organizations, in which 80% of public and private organizations in developing counties are classified as small/medium organizations. As a result, few organizations can use these tools to identify ICT readiness and management frameworks for their business alignment. This paper presents an ICT readiness assessment model specifically designed to measure readiness of ICT utilization levels and ICT penetration levels in small and medium sized organizations in developing countries. Researchers selected 17 of government business departments in Thai justice system to represent public organizations and 12 of the 3 rd party logistics companies in Thailand to represent private organizations in a developing country. These organizations are classified as small/medium sized organization according to the European Commission’s recommendation in 2003.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
