DIGITAL ECONOMY: THE INDUSTRY SPEAKS
Date: 28 April 2015
Time: 08.30 - 13.45 hrs
Changes are in the pipeline for ‘ICT’ to become ‘Digital Economy’. Many changes to laws are proposed with new laws coming. Is it cosmetic or real? If real, how will it impact us?
The success of the Digital Economy will, among other things, depend on two critical factors: 1) the efficient deployment of broadband networks and an appropriate structure for the telecoms sector, which is the foundation of the Digital Economy, and 2) a properly governed and trusted internet to harvest the full innovative potential and secure usage of new services.
This half-day conference brings together experience and perspectives from the industry, Government, users and service provides to exchange views and share ideas for the realization of a Digital Economy.
The ‘digital economy’ can be defined as all economic activity mediated by software and enabled by telecoms infrastructure.
This includes core telecoms services such as voice, messaging and data.
The goods and services within the digital economy can be broadly grouped as:
- intrinsically digital – streaming video, ebooks, computing services, Facebook
- substitutes for established equipment and services – virtual private communications networks, security services, virtualised PBXs
- marketing, sale, logistics etc of physical goods – Amazon, eBay, Alibaba, Tarad.com, Pantipmarket
It also includes the role of governments in the development of infrastructure, services, and the enablement of people and of social and economic enterprise.
As with telecommunications, the Digital Economy works through layers, or building blocks.
