For the second year in succession, Denmark has been ranked No.1 in the world for e-readiness in an annual survey by IBM in conjunction with The Economist Intelligence Unit. The 2005 e-readiness rankings surveyed 65 countries on 100 parameters in six categories. The US has moved up from 6th place to 2nd, followed by Sweden, Switzerland and Great Britain.

Denmark was placed in the top 5 in five of the six categories. The best performance was in the category 'Social and Cultural Environment' where Denmark moved from 10th position to 1st. Other categories where Denmark scored high marks were those covering legal aspects, infrastructure and electronic services. In the category 'Consumer and Business adoption' however, Denmark dropped from 5th to 9th.

Lars Mikkelgaard-Jensen, MD of IBM says that the survey shows that Denmark is among the world's elite, a position that the country should exploit: "It's no longer a question of whether technology should be used, because it is already an integrated part of Danish life. Now the technology must be used in an innovative way. We must think anew and reap the benefits", he adds in a comment on the survey. The news is reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen and national daily newspaper Politiken.
