About the sector
Advanced communication networks and secure, efficient information management are fundamental to a successful economy.
Accessing information, entertainment and services digitally is now part of daily life, both at home, at work, from schools through to hospitals, from fire brigades to airports, and from offices to the armed services.
The reliance on information and the supporting communications networks has meant that it is now regarded as fundamental to a successful global economy. It is also widely recognised that successful use of information communications technology and systems is a key enabler in the drive towards a low carbon economy.
