Abstract [en]

Not being able to, or not knowing how to make use of, ICT is becoming a clear factor of economic exclusion for businesses in developing countries. Several studies has investigated the correlation between access to information about ICT and the overall development of the country suggesting a strong bond. How information regarding ICT solutions can be structured to improve access has been investigated in this thesis using work conducted at the Havana University of Technologies José Antonio Echeverría in Cuba as a basis. This paper explores how information regarding the use of ICT in Cuban enterprises can be structured to eventually allow for further analysis. The information gathered is centered around Enterprise Architecture with a focus on alignment between business areas, processes and applications. The findings suggest that the information can be structured in a foreseeable manner using a database and the analysis of the data may be feasible. The report highlights the difficulties related to heterogeneity and dissimilarities of Enterprise Architecture data limiting the catalogue being used for statistical analysis. Furthermore, this paper gives a recommendation of how the gathering of the information regarding ICT solutions should be structured to increase the relevancy of the database and analysis.

Abstract [sv]

Att inte kunna eller inte veta hur man kan nyttja ICT är en betydande anledning förekonomisk uteslutning för företag i utvecklingsländer. Flera studier har undersökt korrelationen mellan tillgången till information om ICT, och den övergripande utvecklingen av landet som tyder på ett starkt band. Hur information kopplat till ICT lösningar kan struktureras för att ge nya insikter har undersökts i denna avhandling med hjälp av arbeten som utförts på Havana University of Technologies José Antonio Echeverría på Kuba som en fallstudie. I denna avhandling så undersöks hur samlad information om användningen av ICT i kubanska företag kan struktureras för att möjliggöra ytterligare analyser. Den information som samlas in är centrerad kring Enterprise Architecture med fokus på anpassning mellan affärsområden, processer och applikationer. Resultaten tyder på att informationen kan struktureras på ett överskådligt sätt med hjälp av en databas, och analysen av datan kan vara genomförbart. Avhandlingen belyser svårigheter kopplat till att heterogen Enterprise Architecture data och hur detta begränsar databasen från att tillämpa statistisk analys. Vidare ger denna avhandling en rekommendation om hur ytterligare insamling av informationen om ICT-lösningarna ska struktureras för att öka relevansen av databasen och analysen.
