Emerging technologies, including cloud computing, m-services and OTTs: Challenges and opportunities, economic and policy impact for developing countries
In this issue
The world has entered an era of accelerated technology innovation, driven by massive research and development investments and exponential progress in many technologies, especially digital. The growing set of technologies emerging every day is staggering. Digital technologies such as cloud computing, blockchain, artificial intelligence (AI), mobile, virtual/mixed/augmented reality, drones, Internet of Things (IoT) and 3D printing, are transforming every industry. And while each of these technologies is a breakthrough in itself, when combined with other technologies, its core potential is increased exponentially.
This report looks at 1)
the potential, the barriers and challenges for adoption and deployment of m-services, and the policies and regulatory guidelines that can support that development in developing countries; 2)
the impact of OTT provisioning, the policy tools that enable the deployment of OTT applications and the best practices that create incentives for investment, especially in developing countries; 3)
the trends in cloud computing, be it in terms of technology, business models, investments or adoption and at the various tools and frameworks for cloud computing in developing countries.
