In 1844, Samuel Morse sent a series of dots and dashes from Washington, D.C., to Baltimore, Maryland, and forever changed the way our world communicated. By 1866, we had trans-Atlantic telegraph lines. In 1876 the telephone was invented. Welcome to the world’s first big Digital Transformation.

The 200 years since then has seen the birth of the Internet and the age of smartphones, bringing even bigger changes to the way we do everything – from entertainment to work to shopping and business.

Digital economy refers to activities and transactions driven by the public and private sectors as well as the citizens to produce, adopt and innovate digital technologies and services in relation to socio-economic functions for enhanced wealth creation, productivity and quality of life.
