SAN JOSE, California – (BUSINESS WIRE) – 25 Feb 2021–
Inspur Information, a leading provider of IT infrastructure solutions, has sponsored the International Data Corporation (IDC) white paper on the Global Computing Index 2020 (hereinafter referred to as Report ). As the world’s first index report on computing, Report reveals the relationship between computing power and economic development and serves as a reference for prospects for the global digital economy.
The global digital transformation has entered a phase marked by exponential growth in innovation, with the size of the digital economy projected to continue to increase. As one of the key factors underlying the development of digital technology, computing is now increasingly determining the productivity of the digital economy era. Based on Report, economic growth is directly correlated with computing development – one point of growth in the computation index translates to a 3.3 ‰ increase in the size of the digital economy and 1.8 ‰ GDP growth. In particular, the share of the AI computing market is projected to continue on this upward trajectory. Research on the computing market in sample countries shows that the AI computing market share has grown from 7% in 2015 to 12% of the total computing market in 2019 and is expected to reach 23% by 2024. With the largest number of hyper-scale data centers in the world, the United States has demonstrated strong infrastructure support for computing power growth, ranking first on the index ranking with a score of 75. In second place with a score of 66 is China, followed by Japan (55), Germany (52), and Great Britain (47).
Global Computing Index is a year-long joint effort by Inspur Information and IDC. Report, covering Australia, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Japan, Russia, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States, offers a comprehensive assessment of computing power in four dimensions: compute capacity, compute efficiency, application level and support infrastructure.
Zhang Dong, vice president of Inspur Information, noted that “the adoption of emerging technologies, especially AI, will drive computational advancement. As data volumes and algorithmic complexity continue to increase, computing will become the determining factor for the upper frontier of AI development.”
Computing Defines Productivity in the Digital Economy Era; Synchronized Development of Developing Technology Applications and Computing will Drive Economic Growth
Emerging technological and computing developments are mutually beneficial because computing power provides infrastructure support for emerging technologies, which in turn drives the evolution of computing. IoT, AI and big data are some of the main emerging technologies.
By 2020, global spending on AI by companies is estimated to be US $ 49.87 billion, and this figure is estimated to reach US $ 96.28 billion by 2023. AI development is driven by advances in computation, data and algorithms, and required computing power. to process large amounts of data using complex algorithms. Widespread adoption of IoT will drive the rapid advancement of edge computing, which has reshaped IT infrastructure and will revolutionize computing, storage and networking. Cloud computing is the most important way to increase computing efficiency. An IT infrastructure that supports cloud and edge development at the same speed will enable the application of emerging technologies, increase computing power, and ultimately reap greater economic benefits. AI, IoT, cloud computing and other new technologies will be the main drivers of IT spending in the future.
