The Digital Economy uses technology to increase the productivity of the physical economy and to grow markets for digital goods and services.
Key drivers are faster broadband, more powerful devices, and access to almost infinite storage and computing – with more integrated connectivity as next generation networks are rolled out globally.
Through the Broadband and Digital Economy (BaDE) team, NICTA develops and applies technologies to deliver improved lifestyle, economic and commercial outcomes for Australians, underpinned by the increased capacity of the National Broadband Network.
Visitors can experience these initiatives at the Digital Productivity Showcase, which displays NICTA’s research in cloud computing, e-government and e-business, data management, networking and mobile applications. Advances in these fields are laying the foundation for new markets and improved delivery of government and industry services.
