Abstract

Based on a high-quality sample of approximately 8,500 Danish firms, this report, prepared by CEBR for the Danish National IT and Telecom Agency, identifies a clear link between digitalization choices and productivity of Danish firms. In essence, a 1 percentage point larger share of firms who have digitalized certain business processes is related to 0.72 percent higher value added per employee. In a macroeconomic perspective, this translates into between 2.6 and 6.5 billion kroner in annual gross value added.
