Global Information Technology Report 2012 – Living in a Hyperconnected World

29 Dec

Over the past decade the Networked Readiness Index (NRI) has been measuring the degree to which economies across the world leverage ICT for enhanced competitiveness. During this period, it has been helping policymakers and relevant stakeholders to track their economies’ strengths and weaknesses as well as their progress over time. In addition, it has identified best practices in networked readiness and designed roadmaps and strategies for establishing optimal ICT diffusion to boost competiveness. Since 2002, the networked readiness framework has remained stable, aside from some minor adjustments at the variable level to better reflect the dynamic trends in the technology landscape. This has allowed for meaningful comparisons across time and created a valuable database of technology metrics. However, the ICT industry has changed dramatically since 2002 and its effects are increasingly transforming our economies and societies. More precisely, over the past decade, the world has become increasingly “hyperconnected.”
