A Roadmap for the Future

image of Measuring the Digital Transformation

Measuring the Digital Transformation: A Roadmap for the Future provides new insights into the state of the digital transformation by mapping indicators across a range of areas – from education and innovation, to trade and economic and social outcomes – against current digital policy issues, as presented in Going Digital: Shaping Policies, Improving Lives. In so doing, it identifies gaps in the current measurement framework, assesses progress made towards filling these gaps and sets-out a forward-looking measurement roadmap. The goal is to expand the evidence base, as a means to lay the ground for more robust policies for growth and well-being in the digital era.

ICT skills in the workplace

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) are changing jobs and the workforce. Jobs differ in their ICT task intensity – the frequency with which ICT tasks are undertaken – with jobs in occupations such as software, finance, sales and marketing generally more ICT task intensive, while jobs in areas such as accommodation and food, and health and social work tend to have relatively lower ICT task intensity. The average ICT task intensity of jobs ranges from around 40% in the Russian Federation and Turkey to nearly 60% in Scandinavian countries. In almost all countries, the average ICT task intensity of jobs held by women is greater than that of men, with differences being most pronounced in Eastern European countries, as well as in the Russian Federation. Japan and Korea are the only countries where the average ICT task intensity of jobs held by men markedly exceeds that of women.
