Abstract

Revolutionary advancement in information and communication technology (ICT) with strengthening of economic and social aspects is transforming the global communities. A new kind of dynamism—the information dynamics—is emerging where communities are not restricted within boundaries and becoming competent with information, knowledge, networking, and versatility on a global basis. A new society is emerging with pervasive information capabilities, creativity other than the conventional learning system, substantially different from an industrial society; more competitive, better able to address individual needs, and steady to the ever-changing environment. The information revolution creates both the challenge and the means for the developing world to adjust to the newly developed strategic issues and action plans of the New World by accommodating the needful infrastructure of telecommunications and information systems. The information revolution has also opened up opportunities to tackle the problems of poverty, inequality, illiteracy, and environmental degradation.
