Measuring the Digital Transformation

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.

Internet infrastructure

The Internet is a key infrastructure for businesses, individuals, and the public sector alike and continues to expand rapidly. Originally designed as a research network, the Internet’s subsequent commercialisation and expansion have necessitated updates to the data protocols that ensure its functioning. IPv6 was introduced in 1999 to succeed IPv4 and provides significantly greater address space but is being implemented relatively slowly. While around 50% of Internet traffic in Belgium uses the IPv6 data protocol, the share in most countries appears to be 20% or less.
