Small and Medium-sized Enterprises are the backbones of the national economy in production and employment. Information technology can contribute to strengthening the competitiveness of SMEs. This study aims to organize the comprehensive review of existing literature on the information technology adoption and success determinants in SMEs by comparing Korean domestic and aborad studies. The results show that domestic studies tend to be more quantitative research than the research aborad. Technology-Organization-Environment framework has been the most frequently deployed framework, and CEO support and user satisfaction factors are most frequently used in the adoption and success factors. With these findings we hope the future study should adopt more various theories and qualitative research methodologies.
