The US needs a digital revolution, and the tech industry is leading the way, says the president of the Digital Media Association of America, who says the country has “the most advanced and sophisticated” digital market in the world.
Mark Ciappa is the CEO of CPA Digital, a digital marketing company.
In a wide-ranging interview with Mashable, Ciappo talked about the importance of a digital strategy in the 2020 presidential election, what a digital president might look like, the future of the digital economy, and why the US has the best-developed digital market.1:37Mark Cieppa: The way I see it, in the next five years, we need to really start to transform our entire digital strategy.
That includes the strategy that we’ve been building for the last five years to be more effective, which is the strategy of a leader who will be able to inspire and energize the digital community and get them to act more in unison with him.
We need to start to really take a digital approach to everything.2:13The digital revolution has been underway for some time.
In 2012, the US Congress passed the Digital Transformation Act.
The act established the US Digital Council and created a $10 billion program to fund digital initiatives across government.
In 2016, the Digital Innovation Council announced that it was creating a digital agenda that would focus on “a digital transformation of government.”
It included a set of initiatives to help promote and advance digital policies and policies that improve the US economy.
In the 2020s, the Department of Commerce created a new Digital Transformation Task Force to develop and implement the Digital Agenda 2020, which aims to “build on and expand the digital transformation efforts outlined in the Digital Transition Framework.”
In January 2018, the President signed into law the Presidential Strategy for the Digital Economy and Jobs Act, which lays out the “fundamentals of a national strategy for transforming the digital and social economies of the United States.”
The legislation was signed by President Donald Trump and signed into office in March 2020.
The Digital Transformation Strategy outlines a five-year strategic plan for the US digital economy.
The goal of the plan is to “develop the digital infrastructure necessary for a national digital economy that can sustain itself, while also providing opportunities for growth for all sectors of the economy.”
The Digital Transformation Framework is an effort to provide “all stakeholders with the tools they need to deliver the most effective and scalable solutions to the challenges facing the digital future.”
The 2020 Digital Transformation Plan, like the 2015 Strategy for Transformation, lays out a set plan for digital transformation, including:Establishing a National Digital Strategy that will guide the country’s digital economy through 2020Establish the Digital Leadership Council to help the United State create a Digital Strategy and Strategy Process for the digital revolution.
The Digital Leadership Process will help create a digital leadership model for the next Administration.
Establish a Digital Innovation Strategy to guide the digital industry and government.
Established the Digital Technology Strategy to help support and encourage digital innovation in the US.
The digital transformation plan has been widely touted as a plan to help boost the economy and improve jobs, but Cieppo says the plan has also been criticized for being too vague.
“I think it’s a bit of a Catch-22,” Cieppas said.
“It’s not clear how big of a role it should play, and how much it should be focused on.”
The plan doesn’t define what kind of digital infrastructure should be built, or how much should be spent on it.
The plan does, however, outline a set amount of money for the government to spend on digital infrastructure.
“It’s a pretty vague plan.
I think a lot of people have really misconstrued it, or misused it.
And I think they’ve misused that because it’s an incredibly ambitious plan, and it’s not something that people have seen for many years.”
The digital economy will need to be transformed from the bottom up.
Cieppa said the goal of a strong digital economy is to help people get ahead in the digital age, but the digital era is already changing the way we get ahead.
“There’s a lot going on in this space right now that’s very disruptive and disruptive,” Cioppa said.
“What’s happening in the field of digital innovation, where it’s changing everything from the way things are done in a business, to the way you interact with people, to how you interact and make money from people, is going to be a game changer in how we interact with each other.
The more of this, the better off we’ll all be.”
The plan also doesn’t mention any specific platforms that can be used to create an economic “digital paradise,” but Ciappas says that could be just the start.
“You need to create the digital paradise in which people are going to thrive,” he said. And he
