Abstract : The use of informatics in developing small scale enterprises in Turkey is developing in a problematic way. High cost of personnel and high cost of hardware due to continuous devaluations of the Turkish Lira is hindering the use of informatics in the decision-making process of the small firms. On the other hand, effective use of informatics even in big businesses of the developing countries is not very well realised yet. Services offered by the data processing companies are often misunderstood or misused or unused by the small ones. That is the main reason for irrational decision-making processes in developing countries. This kind of decision-making process is also the cause of the vulnerability of the small enterprises against quickly shifting market conditions. It is our hope tha the high benefit providing role of informatics will be understood within the rising industrial elite of Turkey.
