The advancement of information and communications technology (ICT) has meant events happen much more quickly and the pace of change in the world has increased. The Internet has become one of the social infrastructures while web and mobile systems have become a key player in a global society. As such, the technology industry is expected to grow and evolve rapidly in order for Japan to achieve its goal of transforming into an information-oriented society.
Almost everyone uses the Internet and smartphones on a daily basis without thinking. The number of Internet users around the world is said to have reached 3.2 billion. In Japan alone, over 100 million people are said to be using the Internet. There are said to be over 60 trillion websites in the world. The presence of the Internet has grown so significantly that if it is suspended for just a few hours, the world is believed to be paralyzed.
In line with the advancement of IT, development of next-generation technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), internet of things (IoT), big data, virtual reality (VR), and robots is expected to pick up speed in the future. Now is the time to innovate business models to fully respond to ICT.
