That the <em>Global Information Technology Report 2001-2002</em> received such a notable positive response from a broad range of stakeholders underscores the growing relevance of information technology (IT) in national economies and the continuing need for an assessment of the readiness of countries to participate in the networked world.
"Parternships between the private and public sectors are essential for helping national economies leverage innovations in information technology. The <em>Global Information Technology Report</em> provides valuable benchmark data and parternship guidelines for business and government leaders worldwide." - Henning Kagermann, Co-chairman and CEO of SAP AG
Recognizing the relevance of the rapid changes in information technology, this report is an update to the 2001-2002 report, which is the first and most comprehensive international assessment of the readiness of countries to capture the benefits of participating in the networked world.
With regional analyses and specific country case studies, essays on a variety of IT-related subjects, detailed country profiles, and country rankings comparing the global IT experience of different nations, this report remains the most authoritative documentation to date of how IT is being used around the world.
