Portulans Institute Study Shows Results of NRI Ranking

STL, the industry-leading integrator of digital networks, is the NRI’s official knowledge partner.

Portulans Institute has recently revealed its latest results and rankings of the Network Readiness Index (NRI), revealing how countries around the world are leveraging information technologies to emerge from the COVID pandemic and become ‘network ready’.

Portulans Institute NRIThis latest edition – the third compiled by the Portulans Institute since taking over the Index from the World Economic Forum in 2019 – ranks a total of 130 global economies based on their performance across 60 variables.

Soumitra Dutta, co-founder and president, Portulans Institute said, “The COVID pandemic has been a global tipping point in the adoption of technology. It arrived at a time when many digital technologies had reached a degree of maturity, allowing them to be deployed on a large scale rapidly. This report measures the impact of this accelerated digital transformation on governments, businesses, and individuals.”

Bruno Lanvin, co-founder and director, Portulans Institute said, “A strong recovery is now taking place in many parts of the world, and digitization will be one of its core drivers. However, several factors could derail the recovery train, including a lack of digital talents and skills, and a possible resurgence of the digital divide between rich and poor countries. Technology can help us avoid a ‘K-shaped recovery’, but this requires immediate and coordinated efforts in three key areas: infrastructure, education, and governance.”

Ankit Agarwal, Managing Director, STL said, “With the world migrating to digital faster than ever, networks are at the center of the world’s socio-economic development. This year’s NRI report reflects how countries have embraced digital transformation and laid out a roadmap for economies to accelerate their digital journeys. STL is excited to partner with the Portulans Institute for this initiative as we believe network readiness is the cornerstone for achieving global growth while transforming billions of lives.”

The findings are included in a new report published today, ‘Shaping the Global Recovery: How digital technologies can help make the post-COVID world more equal’.
