The benefits gained from information technology expenditures have been the subject of scholarly debate for nearly two decades. Varying results have been obtained in a variety of studies and no firm conclusion has been drawn on the benefits or lack thereof, to the economy as a whole, from this spending. The objective of this study was to investigate information technology productivity in a more comprehensive fashion. This included setting a longer time perspective, reviewing more current information, and measuring productivity using both market and financial based measures. The study reviewed a longer time frame than most, utilizing data from 1989-1999 and separately analyzed the same data set using two different groups of productivity measures - financial and market based. The major contribution of the study is that it provides a broad comprehensive analysis of the impact of information technology on firm and economic productivity.
