Today, opportunity within the digital economy is driven by broadband, mobile, and cloud.
“The advent of widespread broadband and particularly media-centric broadband [the next generation of broadband] that NBN is bringing enables online interactions that are much richer,” says Dr Bradlow.
“Mobile enables online interactions that are much more flexible, and cloud makes the whole process much more efficient.”
As technologies develop, so do the opportunities for productivity.
“Going forward, there are whole new set of technologies that are developing very quickly – in particular artificial intelligence and data analytics and the Internet of Things – that will enable even greater digitisation of the economy,” he says.
“Therefore [there are] opportunities to enhance service and to make things more efficient.”
Change of attitude
The introduction of NBN is an opportunity for every business to take a fresh look at how they work, and the types of processes they have in place.
“If you’re still concentrating on running your own computing infrastructure then you really have to ask yourself why,” says Dr Bradlow.
“Because there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be putting more and more of your computing tech abilities into the cloud, into public cloud service providers.”
According to Dr Bradlow, as technologies that require the level of bandwith provided by NBN, such as augmented reality, become more utilised, it’s crucial for businesses to be ready to adapt to these changes.
