The Global Information Technology Report 2016: Innovating in the Digital Economy

Four important messages emerge from the 2016 Report . First, innovation is increasingly based on digital technologies and business models, which can drive economic and social gains from ICTs if channelled in a smart way.

Second, the way businesses adopt ICTs is key for leveraging them for development, so encouraging businesses to fully embrace the powers of digital technologies should be a priority of governments.

Third, both the private sector and governments need to step up efforts to invest in innovative digital solutions to drive social impact.

Last but not least, a sustainable digital economy will depend on quickly evolving governance frameworks that allow societies to anticipate and shape the impact of emerging technologies and react quickly to changing circumstances.
