A Roadmap for the Future

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.

Roadmap: Measuring open source software

Software for which source code is public and can be freely copied, shared and modified is called “open source software” (OSS).See the Open Source Initiative for a more comprehensive definition of open source software, https://opensource.org/osd-annotated. It is often co-authored using online version control repositories such as GitHub, and may also be bundled into a “package” and uploaded to a “package manager” platform, to be downloaded and re-used by others. There is an incentive to make code as abstract and re-useable as possible, be it within a single program, an organisation or even worldwide as it is inefficient to rewrite code repeatedly (Hunt and Thomas, 1999).
