OECD Information Technology Outlook 2006

Information technology (IT) and broadband are major drivers of economic change, restructuring businesses, affecting skills and employment, and contributing to growth and consumer benefits. This volume describes recent market dynamics and trends in industries supplying IT goods and services and offers an overview of the globalisation of the information and communication technology (ICT) sector and the rise of ICT-enabled international sourcing. It analyses the development and impact of the changing global distribution of services activities and the rise of China and India as significant suppliers of ICT-related goods and services. It also looks at the increasing importance of digital content in selected industries and how it is transforming value chains and business models. The potential of technological developments such as ubiquitous networks, location-based services, natural disaster warning systems, the participative web and the convergence of information technology with nanotechnology and biotechnology is also examined. This book includes StatLinks, URL's linking statistical graphs and tables to spreadsheets containing the underlying data.

Hide / Show Abstract

Digital content is an increasingly important aspect of OECD economies as they shift their emphasis from manufacture of physical items to high-value intangibles. This chapter analyses developments in online games, music, scientific publishing, mobile and user-created content, discusses value chains and business models, analyses growth drivers, and draws horizontal lessons.
