The Role of Private Sector in Applying Computer Technology to Development in Developing Countries.
Rangnekar, Sharu S.
In developing countries, the most important problem faced by the persons who are trying to force the pace of development is often a psychological one. The use of computers has spread in the private sector, public sector companies and government departments. However, propaganda against computers requires reconsideration of the role in developing countries. This paper outlines the following four major problem areas which vitally affect development and where the computer can be used to further development: infra-structure facilities, family planning, unemployment and data banks for economic planning. In developing countries, the future of the private sector is closely linked with the tempo of the development. By utilizing computer resources to assist development, the private sector will not only help the developing country, it will also help in ensuring its own existence and progress. (Author/AB)
