Different nations of the world are developing themselves in the areas that confer opportunities on them over others. In recent times, the metric used in measuring the extent of development falls in the continuum of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) with the firm belief that ICT influences all sectors of the economy and has brought another level of innovation called digitization. Digitization level or index determines a country’s economy strength and weakness as well as opportunities available for such nation to explore in the global market. However, different attempts have been made overtime to put all nations of the world on a single digital scale as it is in Knowledge Economic Index (KEI) developed by World Bank and Networking Readiness Index of Booz and Company. The level of visibility of such documentation for utilization appears to be unattractive and is also highly compact for concerned stakeholders to understand. Hence, there is a need for between countries comparison and also on intercontinental basis to provide relative standing of selected countries and continents. Therefore, this paper attempted a disaggregation of networking and e-readiness index published by World Economic Forum in year 2013.
