Thank you, in advance, for taking the time to complete the State of Digital (Scotland) Survey, 2012. The Survey should take no longer than 5 minutes to complete.

You do not need to be an IT Expert to complete the survey. It has been designed for completion by business owners, executives, senior managers and other key decision-makers knowledgeable about the use of Digital Technology from a 'business-first' perspective.

We also welcome responses from Public Sector and Not for Profit organisations.

The State of Digital Survey has the following aims:

1. To determine the progress made by Scottish Companies in their use of Digital Technologies
2. To determine the gaps and areas of improvement for the main audiences of this survey, to support policy-development in this area
3. To monitor progress and identify changes in behaviour and impact over time

The survey is being undertaken by the Digital Strategy company, Energise 2-0, in close partnership with the Scottish Council for Development and Industry, University of Strathclyde Business School, Kube Networks and Eureka Solutions.
