The annual Trends in Telecommunication Reform publications are a key part of the dialogue with the world’s information and communications technology (ICT) policy-makers and regulators to ensure that all citizens can safely benefit from innovations taking place in the market leading to new applications, services and businesses opportunities brought by a converged digital environment. The 13th edition will examine transnational aspects of regulation in a networked society and provide a sound understanding of the digital ecosystem in place and the role of regulation. To fully participate in today’s networked society and be part of tomorrow’s hyper-connected digital world, policy-makers and regulators need to adopt and implement appropriate policies and means to further safe digital opportunities and inclusion of all. Implementing their digital strategies requires them to cooperate on national, regional and global scales to understand the changes taking place in the market, and adopt innovative regulatory measures and tools.



‎Demystifying regulation in the cloud:opportunities and challenges for cloud computing

With the emergence of ubiquitous broadband connectivity, cloud computing offers an alternative platform from which Information and Communications Technologies (ICT) providers can offer powerful and innovative new services, while providing users with the opportunity to gain access to computational resources and applications beyond those traditionally feasible. By doing so, cloud computing challenges our perception of how to utilize and exploit ICTs to engage in economic and social issues more efficiently and effectively. Uncertainties over the legal and regulatory treatment of cloud computing may, however, act as an obstacle to its adoption.
