Welcome to Networked Business Initiative

The Networked Business Initiative (NBI) is putting nations, companies and their advisors on the fast track to improved business practices in the digitally networked society.

The NBI is on a mission to help companies and their advisors thrive and survive in the networked society. 

The NBI offers companies and their external advisors a free, secure and data driven web-service able to map, measure and benchmark the utilisation and business impact of IT at a company, industry and national level.

Run as a global community initiative, the NBI brings together academic organisations, commercial partners and industry associations in co-creating a globally recognised set of open industry standards for digital networked business success.

Businesses across the world struggle to keep up with the digital revolution that is sweeping through every industry. Networked technologies like social, mobile, cloud, data analytics and web-based information systems radically affect customer behaviour and market dynamics. 

The transformational challenges are enormous and companies need to re-align their staff, products, and processes to stay competitive and take advantage of this new digitally networked society.

Based on self-assesment, the NBI helps organisations understand where they are today and provides a framework for defining a digital vision and identifying priorities to transform that vision to reality. Gain competitive insights and advantages to thrive in the new Networked Business world.

The NBI story

The story of the Networked Business Initiative began in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2010. It is a story about a collaborative network of industry and academia working together to move business' digital maturity forward.

The pilot project in Denmark collected and analysed data from thousands of companies and shared the actionable insights via publications, events and media. During this process the unique collaborative model of NBI has been refined and tested continuously and matured the project into what it is today.
