As digital becomes more pervasive in our lives and work, disruption is becoming the norm. Novel data approaches to growth contribute to making society and nations smarter. Innovative and emerging technologies are increasingly being used to create new services and improve solutions in the public and private sectors. Unleashing the power of fast-changing digital economies further entails utilizing better and modern ways to address the developmental challenges of disease, education, poverty and security.

When a society functions efficiently, lots of new opportunities that add significant value and tremendous economic growth are brought into existence.
