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: Digital intensity, a taxonomy of sectors

The digital transformation is a multifaceted and fast-moving phenomenon that has significant impacts, including on the business processes and models of firms. As a result, the pace of technology uptake will depend, among other factors, on the type of sector in which a given firm operates. While no single indicator is able to reflect the pace of technology development and diffusion, combining indicators can provide insights into how different sectors, are positioned in terms of technology adoption.
