Thus, the availability and use of information and communications technology (ICT) has been growing and becoming complex in industrialized countries.

Methodologically, the study carried out an analysis of the state of the art of the use of ICT in Latin America, and a theoretical and statistical verification. The results showed strong gaps in technology, knowledge, productivity and innovation in the region. The article concluded and shown as a first evidence that ICT was a causal reason for the low level of productivity and quality of life in Latin America.
