Tech Nation: Powering the Digital Economy in 2015

Source: Tech City UK

From the Introduction:

Digital technology companies are pivotal to the UK economy. The diverse digital industries that make up our nationwide technological DNA have grown over the past five years despite a challenging economic climate. They are disrupting traditional industries, forging new innovative sectors and creating new ways of doing business. These developments are now inextricably bound to our national economic story and global competitiveness, interwoven so closely that we can no longer view sectors and industries in strict isolation.

Tech Nation is the first community-driven report of this scale in the UK. It has three broad objectives:
• To understand the geographical spread, and nature, of the UK's digital industry
• To assess the technology capabilities, sector expertise and benefits of each of the UK's digital technology clusters
• To inform policy, investment and collaboration efforts
