Abstract: The notion that an increase in information technology investments will result in a positive impact on productivity has been deliberated comprehensively at various levels. Initial studies have established that, there was no link between investment in IT and productivity while others suggested otherwise. Even though there is a growing number of an academic studies on this topic, most of them has been centered on America, Asia and Europe. This current article reviews and analyzes literatures on the topic and presents a quantitative analysis of the literatures on continental bases. The study uses PRISMA Flow diagram and examined 141 studies that have been published between 1990 and 2017. The results suggested that Europe led with 36.88%, whilst Africa has not contributed much to IT and productivity literature with just 8.51%. The study therefore concluded that more studies on the topic should be done using data from Africa.
