ICT Overview


									ICT   Overview

                 Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is at the
                 heart of the UK economy and is a key source of
                 competitiveness for every sector of industry, opening up new
                 markets, increasing performance, cutting delivery times and
                 driving productivity. According to e-Skills UK, the IT sector
                 makes a significant and growing contribution to the UK
                 economy, representing almost 5% of total UK Gross Value
                 Added (GVA).
                 The ICT cluster covers computer and related activities,
                 telecommunications, ICT manufacturing and supply, internet
                 service providers, systems integrators, software developers, IT
                 hardware suppliers, mobile phone retailers, network
                 specialists, website developers, consultants, computer
                 recycling companies as well as a wide range of
                 complementary services; such as parts suppliers and
                 educational institutions.
                 The East of England ranks third amongst the nine English
                 regions in terms of size of it’s ICT workforce. The East of
                 England Development Agency (EEDA) estimates that there
                 are over 1,600 ICT companies operating in Bedfordshire,
                 employing over 17,000 people - 44% in manufacturing, 36% in
                 the service sector, 14% in Consultancy, 5% in retail and 1% in
                 Research and Development.
                 Luton has an emerging ICT cluster, providing employment for
                 7% of its people, and encompassing 9% of all businesses in
                 the area. Within the Luton City Growth area, there are 336
                 ICT related businesses employing 3,092 people. The number
                 of businesses is increasing by 9.5% per year, whilst the
                 number of employees is increasing by 1.9%.

                 These statistics support the view that there is vast potential for
                 rapid growth and expansion and e-Skills envisage that the ICT
                 industry will continue to benefit from an on-going demand in
                 particular for technical skills in system integration, networking,
                 web design, security and IT architecture.
