Abstract

There is a growing recognition that the adoption and extensive diffusion of new ITs and technological innovations that support social networking are critical to support the related growth of our information-rich society in a way that benefits people and organizations. Similarly important is how the emergence of new technological innovations changes the way that organizations survive and thrive in the highly competitive environment of the global economy. Another frontier for impact of new technologies is at the country level for sustainable social and economic development. Some examples include the emergence of mobile and Internet-based telephony, open software systems, infrastructure and application support for digital social networks, digital entertainment services on the Internet, and more intelligent hardware-based data storage systems. Their incorporation into innovative products and services has had dramatic benefits at all these different levels.
