participate in the networked world and make the necessary preparations to involve in a

networked economy.

Research Objectives

A wide range of studies on E-readiness show the fundamental uncertainties and ambiguities

in theory and in practice. To date, such studies lack robust foundations and empirical analysis,

and provide little guidance for business and government – thus obscuring the realities as well

as the opportunities. Furthermore, all the E-readiness studies use country as the unit of

measurement. Current e-readiness indices assume a fixed, one-size-fits-all set of requirements,

regardless of the characteristics of individual countries or the demands of specific

applications. Moreover, most e-readiness studies provide little information on how their

indices were constructed, or how they might be tweaked to analyze particular e-business

opportunities (Siegel, Haghseta and O’Donnell 2002).

This research is intended to study factors contributing to E-readiness of SMEs operating in

Northern Malaysia. This research paper will answer two research questions:

  • 1.

    What is the level of E-readiness of SMEs in Northern Malaysia?

  • 2.

    What are the factors that contribute to the E-readiness of SMEs in Northern

Malaysia?
