With annual revenues of well over $3 trillion, these industries form the largest, most dynamic and fastest growing industrial block in the world. Infomedia will emerge as the primary competitive weapon of the 21st century. A new generation of technologically astute companies will leverage infomedia to achieve stellar success, while others will sleep through the change only to waken in a world remade."@en ;
