Inequalities are extending their scope in the wrong direction, impacting such dimensions as health care, quality education or safety in the way of living. The Sustainable Development Goal 10 “Reduced Inequalities” aims to establish equality among nations and within countries themselves. At the same time, technology and information systems have rapidly been integrated in our daily life during the previous decade and will continue to gain significant attention due to approaches such as artificial intelligence or deep learning. This matter under concern does not only affect individuals and communities but also businesses and economies on a global scale. Hence, this paper will take in hand the connection between information systems and the progress towards sustainable development with a particular emphasis on inequalities in developing countries.
