UK - HMG has invited input to its UK Government Information Economy Strategy

The UK government has published a consultation paper inviting input to its Information Economy Strategy.

For the purposes of this strategy the working description of the information economy is being taken as:
“the part of the economy where digital technologies and information combine to drive productivity and create new growth opportunities across the whole economy”
The information economy sector is a significant enabler of other sectors. The use of digital technology and information is a key element of most parts of the economy which means the strategy has the potential to make a real difference not only in the UK’s IT sector but across the whole economy.
The main areas are:
  • smart cities;
  • cloud computing;
  • internet of things;
  • big data; and
  • e-commerce.
The deadline for comments is 15 March 2013.
