The digital maturity survey is aimed at helping the Welsh Government and its partners build a picture of the emerging digital economy in Wales.

Results will then be used to inform how the Welsh Government can best support SMEs to further develop the country’s digital economy.

Statistics show 52 per cent of SMEs have already used superfast broadband to increase profit.

A digital infrastructure project due to be part-funded by the £1.3 billion Swansea Bay City Deal is also in the pipeline to boost digital connectivity in urban and rural communities throughout the Swansea Bay City Region, which is made up of Carmarthenshire, Neath Port Talbot, Swansea and Pembrokeshire.

The digital maturity survey is being carried out by the Welsh Economy Research Unit (WERU) of Cardiff Business School. It’s being jointly funded by Cardiff University, the Welsh Government and the European Regional Development Fund.

Survey questions focus on areas including type of internet connection, download and upload speeds, use of social media and cloud-based systems, ICT skills and support, and the impact of digitally enabled business on profitability and employment.

A digital maturity score for all businesses that complete the survey will be provided in early 2020.
