Digital capabilities, adoption and usage are evolving at a supercharged pace.

While most users scramble just to keep up with the relentless rate of innovation, the sectors, companies and individuals on the digital frontier continue to push the boundaries of technology use — and to capture disproportionate gains as a result.The companies leading the charge are winning the battle for market share and profit growth; some are reshaping entire industries to their advantage.Workers with the most sophisticated digital skills are in such high demand that they command wages far above the national average.

Meanwhile, there’s a growing opportunity cost for the organisations and individuals that fall behind.… Companies in manufacturing, energy and other heavy industries are investing in digitising their extensive physical assets, bringing us closer to the era of connected cars, smart buildings and intelligent oilfields.

The expansion of the digital frontier shows no sign of slowing, and we have barely scratched the surface of the many markets that could be transformed.

Even as digitisation creates opportunities for growth, it is likely to unleash economic dislocation.As digital technologies automate many of the tasks that humans are paid to do, the day-to-day nature of work will change in a majority of occupations.

Companies will redefine many roles and business processes, affecting workers of all skill levels.

Under President Joko Widodo, the Indonesian government has focused its efforts on boosting the country’s digital economy.

The discussions between various industry and government stakeholders that began two-and-a-half years ago have culminated in a digital strategy for the country, which was detailed in a paper that will serve as Indonesia’s guiding principles for its digital future.

Small and medium enterprises (SMEs) form the backbone of this vision, said Lis Sutjiati, an expert staff member representing Indonesia’s Ministry of Communication and Information Technology onstage at Tech in Asia Jakarta 2017 this week.

According to Sutjiati, SMEs can double their turnover if they “go online.” This includes adopting software to operate more efficiently and using the internet for marketing and selling goods.

Indonesia’s Gini coefficient – a metric that measures wealth disparity – is already in slight decline, and has been since 2015.

It will retrain some of its civil servants to help SMEs manage ecommerce operations, like listing goods online and managing logistics.

Yesterday, GDP figures from the Office for National Statistics revealed quarter-on-quarter growth of 0.4%.

This was 0.1% above predictions and enough to take at least some pressure off Philip Hammond's Budget next month.

Whilst a drop of 0.1% in growth would have been viewed as disastrous by many, an improvement by the same may just give the Bank of England enough confidence to raise interest rates next week for the first time since July 2007.

If there is a rate rise we're most likely looking at a 0.25 increase - merely brining rates into line with the previous historic low of 0.5% which stood for over seven years until rates were halved last August.

There are also two significant factors that will be giving some, including the Chancellor, the odd sleepless night.

Productivity has more or less flat-lined since the financial crisis and is pushing down real-term wage growth and, in turn, living standards.

Southeast Asia’s Internet economy is set to hit $50bn in 2017, outpacing earlier growth expectations by 35% and well on track to realising a $200bn internet economy by 2025, according to a report released by Google and Temasek Holdings, the Singapore government’s investment vehicle, called the ‘e-Conomy Southeast Asia Spotlight 2017’.

The report found that ecommerce sales are accelerating in SEA, reaching $10.9bn in gross merchandise volume in 2017 , up from $5.5bn two years ago and growing at 41% compound annual growth rate due to the rise of small and medium businesses (SMB) with mobile-first platforms like Lazada, Shopee, and Tokopedia.

Consumer engagement with these platforms have boomed tremendously, with Google searches for top SEA ecommerce brands growing more than two times in two years and mobile internet users spent an average of 140 minutes per month on theses platforms.

Ride hailing services is another sector with massive user engagement, the report found, as it experienced dramatic growth in the past two years.

It estimate d these services will reach $5.1Bbn GMV in 2017, more than double from $2.5Bbn GMV in 2015 as more than 6m rides per day were booked ride-hailing apps like Go-Jek, Grab, and Uber in Q3 2017, a more than four-fold increase since 2015.

One area that is a cause of concern is the shortage of homegrown tech nology talent , said the report, as even though in the last two years, venture capital fundraising has accelerated, and advances in the development of e-payment solutions, Internet infrastructure, delivery networks, and consumer trust in online transactions has improved, the talent challenge remains largely unsolved.

Compared to the obvious toll of industrialization, it’s far too easy to forget about the environmental and human impact of the digital age.

Whether it is the energy usage of a data center helping power the internet or the cognitive capitalism of a company like Google that asks us to exchange our data instead of our cash, there is a weird temptation to view the world of zeros and ones as substantially different to the one that preceded it.

Not only does it carry its own environmental toll (the bitcoin network consumes more energy than the country of Bulgaria), but its associated areas — algorithms, artificial intelligence, and machines — alter how humans relate to labor.

An innovative new project carried out by a Dutch organization called the Institute of Human Obsolescence (IoHO) explores this idea in an intriguing way by creating a more sustainable approach to mining cryptocurrencies — by harvesting human body heat.

“We [hired] human workers to lay down on workstations, wearing a body suit that harvests their residual body heat, with which we produce electricity that then is used to mine cryptocurrency,” creator Manuel Beltrán told Digital Trends.

“With this project, we aim at sparking a discussion about the way humans relate to technology and the socio-political implications of the accelerated pace of undiscriminated technological assimilation.

I enjoy conversations with the gate agents, flight attendants, hotel staff, waitresses and cab drivers.

Being outgoing is part of my nature, but I don t just talk to them for the sake of talking – I m building relationships to learn where the locals go, discover how to get a deal and, most of all, to have a better experience.

And a sizeable percentage of businesses worldwide are well aware of this reality, according to an SAP-sponsored IDC study:

8 percent believe that the next generation of corporate employees won t have the same kind of relationships with customers as experienced in the past

7 percent say that employees are no longer as personally connected to customers

Does this mean that digital technology is turning people into social hermits who avoid human interaction in favor of the glowing screen before them?

The revolution is burgeoning in unexpected, unusual places as if to confirm the comprehensive, all-encompassing nature of this fourth industrial revolution: farmers using millimetre accurate GPS to guide their crops, or start-ups using blockchain to address financial inclusion.

Labour believes that this should have been a Digital Future Bill looking at how we support the digital economy so that it works for everyone: thinking about skills and education, Digital inclusion, workers protections in the gig economy, the ethics of Big Data and data sharing, digital infrastructure, taxation, digital public services, financing for start-ups particularly outside London, WiFi in public spaces, the progress of open data policy making and post-Brexit the ability of companies to recruit specialists.

We don t oppose areas of policy for the sake of it, and there are some much-need needed measures in this Bill but it is frankly not ambitious enough for the sector or the country.

The danger is the USO speed will be outdated even before its introduction and five years, let alone ten years down the line, it will seem like a relic of a bygone age.

The Bill also covers some measures on nuisance calls, on protecting children from age-inappropriate content on the web and on data sharing between government agencies.

Labour s DCMS team is tabling dozens of amendments to strengthen those areas, attempting to do the Government s job for them but the truth is this Bill, limited by the imagination of the Ministers, can never be ambitious enough for our growing digital economy.
