OverviewThe world we knew even ten years ago has changed out of all recognition. Economic change (credit-crunch recession, changes in regional influence), technological development (cloud computing, mobile broadband, deep analytics), the impact of the Internet (movement of advertising revenues, social networking mass interaction), and social pressures (climate change, globalisation) are all challenges and issues that were all but unknown in the 1990s.
In the UK (and much of the 'developed' world), these challenges have required us to become more innovative, more productive, and more supportive of wealth and employment creation.
We need to be more collaborative, to anticipate future change, to more rapidly adapt to circumstances, to up-skill our people, and learn how to apply technology and deploy knowledge more effectively. But the world of information technology is in a state of flux itself making planning, from a policy or business perspective, more complex than ever.
The Connected World programme addresses all these issues, and produces information and insights for three key audiences: business leaders, policy-makers, and the ICT/content industries - not just research, but a roadmap for what each of those groups should consider today, and recommendations for action.
