Makale özeti ve diğer detaylar.
Over the past few decades, information and communication technologies (ICTs) have dramatically transformed the societies and the economies around the world. Today ICTs have become an essential part of the modern culture and cover almost all aspects of life. With advanced ICTs, especially the Internet, the world has become like a global village. As a result of advances in information technologies, the knowledge gaps have started to be apparent between people, organizations, and countries. Although developed countries enjoy the benefits of ICTs in almost all areas of life, developing countries do not benefit enough from these technologies. There are significant differences between developed and developing countries in terms of accessing and using the ICTs. That is defined as the global digital divide. There are also different types of the digital divide within a country, such as the gender digital divide, the age digital divide and the income digital divide. The main aim of this paper is to explore the digital divide in enterprises in a developing country, Turkey, by using ICT Usage Survey in Enterprises, carried out by Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat).
