Information technology plays a key role in the new, emerging global economy. But how do organizations tackle the increasingly important task of defining a method for assessing the state of IT in a given country?

Dr. Howard Rubin -- a business/technology analyst, consultant, and creator and mastermind behind the Worldwide IT Trends & Benchmark Report -- has tackled this formidable task. In The Global New E-Economy Index (GNEI), Dr. Rubin uses employment, investment, productivity, infrastructure, and other metrics to measure the state of IT readiness in nearly four dozen nations.

Assessing the Vital Signs of IT Capability

The GNEI collects data in five areas:

  • Knowledge jobs

  • Globalization

  • Economic dynamism and competition

  • Transformation to a digital economy

  • Technological innovation capacity



"The GNEI represents an important measure of economic dynamism and strength, as well as the technological capabilities and potential of each country."
- Dr. Howard Rubin
