The Evolution of Digital Capacity by Country


The Fletcher School, Tufts:

The Digital Evolution Index (DEI) analyzes the key underlying drivers and barriers that govern a country’s evolution into a digital economy: Demand, Supply, Institutional Environment, and Innovation. A longitudinal analysis of these four drivers during the years 2008 to 2013 enables us to make sense of the evolving global digital landscape, reveal patterns and provide insights into both current consumers and those to come. The index and the corresponding analyses of the patterns reveal many broad conclusions – each of them has powerful managerial, investment and policy implications.
