As defined by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) - Globalization " is a historical process, the result of human innovation and technological progress. It refers to the increasing integration of economies around the world, particularly through the movement of goods, services, and capital across borders. The term sometimes also refers to the movement of people (labor) and knowledge (technology) across international borders. There are also broader cultural, political, and environmental dimensions of globalization."
ICT and Globalization
ICT and Government Efficiency
"Ultimately, this Strategy will ensure that agencies use emerging technologies to serve the public as effectively as possible. As a Government, and as a trusted provider of services, we must never forget who our customers are -- the American people." —President Barack Obama, May 23, 2012
In 2012 President Obama issued a directive to deliver digital services to the American People.
The Digital Government Strategy has three main objectives:
Enable the American people and an increasingly mobile workforce to access high-quality digital government information and services anywhere, anytime, on any device.
Ensure that as the government adjusts to this new digital world, we seize the opportunity to procure and manage devices, applications, and data in smart, secure and affordable ways.
Unlock the power of government data to spur innovation across our Nation and improve the quality of services for the American people.

"A smart city is a developed urban area that creates sustainable development and high quality of life by excelling in multiple key areas: economy, mobility, environment, people, living and governance. Excelling in these key areas can be done so through strong human and social capital, and information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure."
At the 8th Education International (EI) Africa Regional Conference, President Uhuru Kenyatta, indicated that the Kenyan government is committed increasing ICT resources, ""Our emphasis is premised on the understanding that integration and globalization are essentially technology-driven,"

In 2013, Pew did a study on online dating based on 2005 survey data of the internet's impact on dating and relationships. Match.com was one of the first in the 1990s and since then there have been three forms that have evolved:

ICT and eGambling
Online gambling started in the 1990s with the passage of the 1994 Free Trade & Processing act by Antigua and Barbuda

Kahnawake Gaming Commission formed in 1996 to regulate online casinos

According to the ITU - "At the end of 2013, there were an estimated 2.7 billion people using the Internet worldwide and approximately 6.8 billion mobile phones. Despite the apparent ubiquity of ICTs, their benefits are not uniformly experienced by the 7.1 billion people in the world."
At the 2000 UN Millennium Development Summit - 8 Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) were developed to assist underdeveloped countries and World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in 2013 - emphasized how ICT's could improve help meet MDGs
President Obama has been very instrumental in pushing GOV 2.0, he stated “We must use all available technologies and methods to open up the federal government, creating a new level of transparency to change the way business is conducted in Washington, and giving Americans the chance to participate in government deliberations and decision-making in ways that were not possible only a few years ago.” The Open Government Directive had three principles:
Government should be transparent, with information about agency operations and decisions available to the public online.
Government should be participatory, tapping the collective expertise of the American public in government decision-making processes.
Government should be collaborative, using technology to share and cooperate with other agencies, businesses and nonprofits, and the public at large.

Despite Significant growth based on the ITU Index African still shows less progress compared to other regions
According to the 2014 ITU Measuring the Information Society Report, The African regional ICT Development Index (IDI) is the lowest of six region, with only two countries that are above the global IDI (Mauritius and Seychelles)
Africa is one of the fastest growing Regions in ICT.
650 Million Mobile Subscribers
As of 2012 Africa represented about 7% of world's internet users
However only 7% of households have internet access
If the ICT market continues its impressive double digital growth, expenditures in ICT within Africa could exceed US$150 billion by 2016
In order to solve for the cycle of ineffective service delivery of low returns, low transparency, low citizen participation there is a shift towards a ICT enabled Three-tiered public service delivery framework. In particular, Mauritius and Nambia have shown dedication to the this framework with their eGovernment policies. Other examples include
Malawi’s Integrated Financial Management Information System (IFMIS)
South African Revenue Service (SARS)
Despite Nigeria and Egypt being the top internet countries in Africa other countries have developed applications that has but Africa on the map -
