The world's emerging economies are narrowing the technology deployment gap with the U.S. and other developed countries, says a new global study conducted by Info-Tech Research Group and KnowledgeStorm.

"Established countries lead in terms of the breadth and scope of technology that's already adopted and implemented, but emerging economies are definitely nipping at their heels."
