S .O. Migiro


The Internet's World Wide Web has become the prime driver of modern E-commerce. The World Wide Web and the
Internet together with other ICT enabling technologies offer a platform in the way organizations arrange their business
processes. address their marketplaces. and partner with other enterprises. The objectives of this paper are to map ICT
diffusion and adoption of e-commerce by manufacturing SMEs in Kenya and identify specific barriers to the exploitation of
these drivers. The investigation adopts a descriptive survey research design in which rondom sampling techniques are
used. The data was analysed using descriptive statistics. Results reveal that high cost. limited funds and lack of technical
know-how are barriers in the diffusion of ICTs among the manufacturing SMEs.
