Connectivity Scorecard 2009
Type of work: Report
The Connectivity Scorecard is a pioneering global information and communications technology (ICT) index that measures the extent to which governments, businesses and consumers make use of connectivity technologies to enhance social and economic prosperity.
New measures provide more comprehensive results on ICT usage
Unlike other research available, the Connectivity Scorecard measures usage and skills such as literacy, the use of enterprise software and the accessibility of women to ICT. It also articulates the benefits of connectivity explicitly in terms of economic and social contributions taking into account varying needs in different countries.
Different economies have different needs
Economic growth of innovation driven economies depends on new ways of using connectivity, whereas for efficiency and resource driven economies social development plays an important role in getting the most from connectivity investments.
