SCDI, Scotland IS, The Royal Society of Edinburgh and BT Scotland joined forces to produce a 'Digital Solutions to the Productivity Puzzle' Report, launched on 18.Jan.2016. 

With input from a cross-section of industry leaders, it notes that the Scottish Government and all sectors need to focus on utilising the new, world-class digital infrastructure in Scotland for higher economic growth and public service improvements over the next 5 years.

It calls for similar senior appointments across the public and private sectors to provide stronger leadership on digitalisation and action to recruit, train and continually develop more specialist Computer Science teachers. The report also makes recommendations on business transformation, data, skills and infrastructure and joint work to drive up digital adoption, usage, benefits and skills across the Scottish business base. 

You can read more regarding the key recommendations here.
