Abstract:

The world is fast becoming a global village and a necessary tool for this process is information technology. Thus, this study examined the impact of information technology on the economies of small-scale business enterprises, specifically on business growth and income flow, job creation, efficient business management and crime rate reduction. Survey approach was adopted and data was collected from 1000 respondents randomly selected from some commercial communities in Nigeria; Lagos, Abuja, Benin, Ekpoma, Auchi, Ajaokuta and Okpella, using the questionnaire alongside personal interview. The Chi- Square (X2) statistic was used as an inferential tool. This was used to test the hypothesis formulated in the course of the study. Findings generally indicate that information technology has impact on small-scale business enterprises in terms of business growth and income flow, job creation, efficient business management and drastic reduction of fraudulent activities in business. Thus, it was concluded that the benefits of inform ation technology to smallscale business enterprises cannot be overemphasized. However, information technology resources are still underutilized in the rural areas. Hence, focus should be shifted to optimum utilization of information technology resources for the benefits of all small-scale business enterprises in Nigeria.
