Abstract

The Internet's World Wide Web has become the prime driver of modern E-commerce. The World Wide Web and the Internet together with other ICT enabling technologies offer a platform in the way organizations arrange their business processes, address their marketplaces, and partner with other enterprises. The objectives of this paper are to map ICT diffusion and adoption of e-commerce by manufacturing SMEs in Kenya and identify specific barriers to the exploitation of these drivers. The investigation adopts a descriptive survey research design in which random sampling techniques are used. The data was analysed using descriptive statistics. Results reveal that high cost, limited funds and lack of technical know-how are barriers in the diffusion of ICTs among the manufacturing SMEs. ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR
