For Australian businesses, the emergence of new technologies has brought significant change to the way business is done.

Much has been made of the opportunities that exist for Australian businesses to enter the 'global market' or to embrace the 'new economy'. Technologies, particularly the information technologies, are seen as facilitators or enablers for this new activity, allowing business to compete in an ever evolving market place.

During the year ended June 2003, an estimated 83% of all businesses in Tasmania used a computer and 63% used the Internet. At 30 June 2003, approximately 19% of businesses reported having a web presence, either with their own web site or a presence on another entity's web site.
