We are going to conduct a PESTEL analysis of the company called Digital Divide Data (DDD) as per the guidelines given by the authors mentioned in the question.
DDD was founded in the year 2001; it had a humble start as a tiny Information Technology outsourcing company in Cambodia with less than 15 employees. Soon it saw a tremendous growth and crossing a couple of million dollars.
