Presentation Infrastructure as a legal dependence
The more digital we become, the more our dependence on data collection, transfer, storage, transformation, interpretation and presentation increases. Higher towers, thousands of kilometers of optical network, enormous data transfer speeds and connections, and secure data storage – the elements that form the backbone of our ICT ecosystem. In countries that have recognized the importance of ICT infrastructure, infrastructure has become one of the key drivers of growth and the basis for information to become oil!
