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.

Consumers increasingly purchase goods and services online (e-commerce) and have access to a range of (typically) free services, such as search engines, social networks, media and so on. Businesses are able to capitalise on digital tools and data to boost productivity and penetrate new markets.
