Abstract: Anchoring our research in stakeholder theory and using secondary data from 100 countries, we examine the role of 'Information Technology (IT) readiness' of primary national stakeholder groups in a nation (i.e., citizens, businesses and governments), in facilitating both ''e-government and e-Commerce development'' in a nation. Furthermore, using the IT impact perspective, we examine the impact of e-government and e-Commerce development on the 'IT usage patterns' of the three identified national stakeholder groups. This study also examines the relationships between e-government and e-commerce in a nation so as to identify the important interdependencies between the two.
