Overview for Global Trade in Information Technology
The twentieth century has witnessed an exciting and exhaustive explosion in the arena of Information technology. The computers and communications have become integral part of our lives. The revolutionary changes and widespread availability of global information systems carry with them an assurance for generation and sharing of information at a degree of complexity and pervasiveness that was unimaginable until recently. It has emerged one of the largest and fastest growing industrial sectors and an essential infrastructure for the 21st century. No-doubt, India seems to be sitting on a high technology boom but she is yet to move on from being a potential high-tech giant to an actual high rung player in the vast field of information Technology. While there is full hope for supportive polity measures, at national and global level both, the book encompasses trade, industry development, markets, technology and strategies through collection of information, analysis, assessment of trends, forecasting of the global IT markets, technology infrastructure and IT production. The book examines in detail the national and global policies and focuses on identification of major products, trade pattern, industry trends and evolution, developments in technology and opportunity for Indiaâ€™s IT alongwith its growth in global trade.
