Defining the Digital Sector

Due to the cross-cutting and dynamic nature of the tech sector, well-established boundaries around the digital technologies sector do not exist.

As shown in the diagram below, digital technologies are part of the New Zealand “Tech Sector”, a broader grouping of ICT industries that includes telecommunications and certain manufactured products.

The red border in the diagram shows the scope of the sector applied to this ITP, with the digital technologies sector represented by statistical sub-sectors: data processing, web hosting and storage services; computer system design; and software publishing (interactive media).
