Digital economic modernization is a crucial element of progress in both OECD countries and newly industrialized countries. The contributions to this book explore the technological and economic dynamics of information and communication technology (ICT) and focus on several innovative software applications which aim at solving standard and new problems more efficiently. They particularly emphasize the point that innovation within an economic context does not solely concern companies and their customers; integrating research institutions and universities enhances the scope of creativity to not only produce concrete innovative ideas and projects, but also to develop procedures and techniques for putting them into practice. This book provides companies with both insights into new approaches and immediate access to innovative concepts.
