The cloud economy and developing countries

image of Information economy report 2013
The Information Economy Report 2013 contributes a nuanced appraisal of the potential role and value of cloud computing in developing and transition economies. It does so by looking at three main areas: current status of the cloud economy in developing countries, potential impacts and, building on these, elaborates on policy and regulatory approaches to facilitate adoption and use of the cloud and to maximize gains from it. This is the first time a United Nations Secretariat report examines the implications of cloud computing for developing countries.

Preface

Innovation in the realm of information technology continues its rapid pace, with cloud computing representing one of the latest advances. Significant improvements in the capacity to process, transmit and store data are making cloud computing increasingly important in the delivery of public and private services. This has considerable potential for economic and social development, in particular our efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals and define a bold agenda for a prosperous, sustainable and equitable future.
