Resumen

El presente estudio analiza el impacto que ejerce el uso de las tecnologías de información y comunicación (TIC) sobre la diversificación y el rendimiento empresarial de las pequeñas y medianas empresas (pymes). A partir de una muestra de 95 empresas de la comunidad autónoma del País Vasco, se evidencia que las empresas diversificadas muestran un mayor nivel de uso de las TIC y que este recurso afecta positivamente el rendimiento financiero y no financiero de la empresa. Los análisis muestran también que las TIC son una variable mediadora entre el tipo de diversificación y el rendimiento de los negocios en los cuales ha entrado la empresa. Para el análisis estadístico descriptivo y correlacional de las variables, se utilizó el software IBM SPSS en su versión 21. Entre los futuros trabajos que pueden derivarse de este, está el de aplicar el modelo a diferentes industrias con la idea de comparar los resultados encontrados y definir estrategias específicas.

This study analyzes the impact of the use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) on the diversification strategy and performance of small and medium enterprises (SMEs). From a sample of 95 companies in the autonomous community of the Basque Country, it is evidenced that diversified companies show a higher level of use of ICT and this resource positively affects financial and non-financial company performance. The analysis also show that ICT is a mediating variable between the type of diversification and performance of business in which the company has entered. For the correlational descriptive and statistical analysis of the variables, IBM SPSS software was used (version 21). Further analysis which may expand upon this study could be to apply the model to different industries with the idea of comparing the results found and to define specific strategies.
