Introduction to digital communication


Introduction to digital communication, that global network that includes all economic activities, practical and professional interactions, and commercial transactions, which are enabled, strengthened and developed by a set of information and communication technologies abbreviated by the symbol (ICT), noting that the digital economy reflects a state of transition from The third industrial revolution, to the fourth industrial revolution.


The industrial revolution, in its third phase, which is called the digital revolution, refers to a series of changes that occurred on the economic side of the world in the late twentieth century, coinciding with the transition from working in analog electronic and mechanical devices to working towards the use of digital technologies.


It is worth noting that the Fourth Industrial Revolution depends and is mainly based on the digital revolution, while maintaining the continuation of current technologies to meet the needs of both the physical world and the internet world.


The importance of the digital economy

Although some organizations and individuals are using the technologies currently available to implement current tasks on a computer, the digital economy is more advanced than that, as it is not sufficient to use a computer to perform tasks that are done traditionally or manually.


Instead, the digital economy plays a prominent role in showing the opportunity and the urgent need for organizations and individuals, and pushes them to use these digital technologies, for the purpose of carrying out those tasks better, with higher quality, and within a shorter period of time, faster, and often the results or outputs. Completely different than before.


The digital economy versus the Internet economy

In the early days of the conceptualization of the new economy, the digital economy was sometimes called the Internet economy, the new Internet connected economy, or the Web economy, due to its reliance on the Internet connection.


However, economists and business leaders assert that the digital economy is more advanced and complex than the Internet economy, which means, in one definition, the economic value derived from the Internet, that is, by using this network only.


Digital Economy and Society Index

The Digital Economy and Society Index, or DESI as it is abbreviated, is that composite or dual indicator that has been published by the European Commission since 2014, and has been published annually since that time.


As this indicator measures the progress made by the European Union countries towards the digital economy and society, and the principle of its work is to combine a set of relevant indicators regarding the current mix of digital policy in Europe.
