APDIP e-Note 7 - Open Technologies: Catalyst for transformation

An information and communications technology (ICT) ecosystem includes not only the hardware and software but also the policies, processes, applications, partnerships and stakeholders that together make up the technology environment for a country, government or organization. This APDIP e-Note explains the value of open ICT ecosystems and elaborates on their principles and building blocks in simple terms.

This APDIP e-Note is based on the Roadmap for Open ICT Ecosystem, a product of Harvard University’s Berkman Centre for Internet and Society. Find out more and download the Roadmap at http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/epolicy
