Business,  Manufacturing  & Commerce

In an Information Society, doing business digitally involves both products and services and encompasses many diverse activities both in the business-to-business market and in the business-to-consumer market. 

The market for business and professional information is expected to reach $70 billion by 2002. Digital media and telecommunications technologies are rapidly becoming the life-blood of nearly every business, manufacturing or commercial sector. Globalisation and the high rate of obsolescence has lead to the demand for systems that can cut down on time to market and saving in time has replaced saving in cost as the driving force in the investment in new computer-based systems.

In the Information Society, there will be an increasing need for systems that can enable widely dispersed workers to co-operate on a single project to speed up the production cycle to satisfy expanding and competitive markets. And one of the Commission's main tasks is to support and encourage the development of tools and technologies that ensure that Europe can lead the world in the creation of systems that actually cut time to market.To focus on customer excellence and improve productivity, industry needs information management and thinking that takes account of differences in corporate culture across the global professional information world.
