However, some sectors point outthat these should adopt solid corporal structures and implement technological tools such as informationtechnologies and communication that ease its performance, and at the same time allow an increase onthe productivity and competitiveness level. Unfortunately, there are still some PYMES that use obsoletetechnologies or they just do not use technology, which prevents them from being competitive. Nevertheless,in spite of these limitations, their contributions have been acknowledged and the government plus the higheducation institutions and the industrial sector have become their strategic allies in order to support themand project them towards a more productive path. This article shows the results of a research study on PYMES in the metal-mechanic sector in Cartagena in order to identify the strengths and weaknesses in theuse of information technologies and Web tools 2.0 in their processes.
