Yet again, Denmark tops world ranking for e-readiness

For the fourth year in succession, Denmark has been ranked No.1 in the world for e-readiness in an annual survey of the world's largest economies by IBM in conjunction with The Economist Intelligence Unit. In the 2007 rankings, Denmark just keeps its nose ahead with 8.88 points out of a possible 10, while the US and Sweden tie for the No.2 spot with 8.85. Hong Kong continued its upward trend to take 4th spot with 8.72.
 
Whether Denmark will manage to cling onto the lead for a fifth consecutive year remains to be seen. As Robin Bew, editorial head of the Economist Intelligence Unit, comments: "Technologic leadership changes quickly. New technologies and new attitudes to the use of technology mean that advantages won by hard work may soon be undermined by new competitors."
 
The survey looks beyond basic connectivity and also studies how the internet is being used to improve productivity and reduce costs, including online access to public services. Denmark has remained No.1 by taking full advantage of the internet, connecting citizens securely over broadband and wireless networks as well as using its near ubiquitous hook-ups for internet banking and government services such as tax returns.
