Five perspectives on informatization connotation

  • Detail

Looking at the connotation of informatization from five perspectives, the expression of the word "informatization" has Chinese characteristics, because it has not been included in British and American dictionaries. After a lot of exploration, we can roughly summarize the translation of the word "informatization" into the following translation methods: informationalization, informationalization, informationalization (other free translations will not be listed one by one). Among them, the information technology office of the State Council now adopts the last translation method. However, no matter which word we use, it is a word we make according to the word formation habits of French or English. We can proudly say that "informatization" is definitely not imported

since Deng Xiaoping, the chief architect of China's reform and opening up, wrote the inscription "developing information resources and serving the four modernizations" in 1984, the concept of "informatization" has not been new. What is new is that there are still many gaps in understanding and attitude towards informatization, and there is often a gap between aspiration and reality: informatization can significantly improve the economic development level of countries, enterprises, industries and communities, It is not common for information projects to fully achieve the expected goals. Is our goal high, is the role of informatization exaggerated, or is it the cost we must pay to take the road of informatization? As for informatization, there are advocates, hesitations and resisters, which constitute the living beings of informatization construction

since Watt invented the steam engine, industrialization has been going on for more than 300 years, and the word informatization has been officially used in China for only 20 years. 20 years is too short to seize the day. Perhaps because of "short time and tight tasks", we can't reach a consensus on more details about informatization, so we began to learn by doing and learning by doing. This is a pragmatic attitude, but at the same time, we also left the differences on the understanding of informatization connotation to today. "The more the truth is debated, the more clear it is". This magazine collected and interviewed officials, experts, it enterprises, information application enterprises, social personages, etc. to have an in-depth discussion on the connotation of informatization, which is to understand the connotation of informatization more profoundly

the report of the 16th National Congress of the Communist Party of China pointed out that "informatization is the inevitable choice for China to accelerate the realization of industrialization and modernization. We should adhere to using informatization to drive industrialization, and using industrialization to promote informatization, and blaze a new industrialization path with high scientific and technological content, good economic benefits, low resource consumption, less environmental pollution, and full play to the advantages of human resources." Both "drive" and "promote", the national will shows that informatization is no longer an auxiliary tool, but a leading force that has moved towards the front stage of economic development

why is it "belt"

for informatization, playing is a state of mind, and enjoying informatization life is an attitude. Many countries in northern Europe and the Middle East only advocate the application of IT technology and products, and there are few mature IT industries, because these countries can enjoy a good informatization life with their rich product resources, and informatization is more representative of enjoyment for them. However, for China, the situation is quite different

with the increasingly frequent phenomenon of switching off and power rationing in various regions, the contradiction between the shortage of energy and raw materials has become increasingly prominent. Zhao Xiaofan, director of the promotion and application group of the Information Work Office of the State Council, once calculated that if China wants to quadruple its economy in the first 20 years of this century, it will be able to use all the coal, steel and oil in the world. This prompted Chinese people to re-examine industrialization

the CPC Central Committee first put forward the assertion that "informatization drives industrialization" at the Fifth Plenary Session of the 15th CPC Central Committee, "vigorously promoting national economic and social informatization is a strategic measure covering the overall situation of modernization. It is necessary to drive industrialization with informatization, give play to late development advantages, and realize the leap forward development of social productivity". Informatization is endowed with a lofty mission. It is not only necessary for the information industry to perform well, but also to use information technology to penetrate into various industries and "bring together" other industries. On the one hand, it saves production material resources, on the other hand, information technology and e-commerce help traditional enterprises obtain more opportunities. How to use informatization to make China more prosperous and powerful is the fundamental purpose of our efforts to promote informatization, and the effect of "belt" can be truly shown

have you brought it? Is it driven

although the word "informatization" is not the world language, every country has a surprisingly consistent attitude towards promoting digital life, eliminating the digital divide and creating an information society. No one will abandon information technology and stay in the "Jurassic era" where "communication basically depends on roaring"

In 2004, the sales output value of electronic information industry exceeded 2.65 trillion yuan, becoming the first pillar industry of the national economy. Informatization has not only "led" but also "driven" the transformation of traditional industries, forming a situation of information industry and informatization counterparts. Great progress has been made in the informatization of regions, fields, enterprises and society advocated by the state. It is the pioneer of informatization in e-government, education, finance, transportation, health informatization, etc. After the promulgation of the electronic signature law, the informatization laws and regulations are also constantly improving and strengthening

at the end of 2004, the information technology research center of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences released the report on the development of e-commerce in Chinese enterprises after investigating 838 enterprises with an annual sales revenue of more than 30million yuan in various industries. The survey shows that the average number of pcs per 100 people is 7.79; 96.2% of enterprises have been connected to the Internet; Enterprises that have established enterprise stations account for 85.9%; 69% of the Internet access aims to improve efficiency and 52.4% to improve management level; 89.3% of enterprises have established financial management databases; 68.8% of enterprises have established personnel management databases; 57.1% have established marketing database and 54.1% have established customer management database

Guo Xin, deputy director of the China Maritime Safety Administration, said in an interview that maritime informatization is an inevitable means to realize the modernization of maritime management. Almost no one doubts that informatization is a necessary measure and means to carry out various work, which is mentioned many times in the summary report of informatization construction made by most ministries and commissions. "Neither of the four modernizations can be achieved without informatization." Qiang Wei, assistant general manager of Shougang Corporation, said that informatization should become the main line of promoting Shougang's internal management reform; By integrating the upstream and downstream supply chains, the CIO of Shuanghui group managed to achieve a super scale of low fitness meat processing enterprise with a sales revenue of 16billion yuan. Wang Junxiu, President of blog China, even believes that grassroots Internet, family informatization and private enterprise informatization have driven the informatization at the national level. Although this view is inconsistent with the "e-government first, driving national informatization" put forward by many experts, compared with the E-government that still serves the "minority", family informatization is more direct for the "public" to contact and understand the connotation of informatization

in the informatization construction, what pessimists see is "informatization consumption game". Tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of funds are invested in the information construction, which seems to be unable to see much output. How can it look like a consumption game. Seeing too many failure cases of informatization, the argument of "informatization construction foam" has been constant, especially at the time of the bursting of the it foam at the beginning of this century, many people have given the suggestion of "be careful again and again"

it is necessary to come to Huaibei aluminum based high-end metal material industry base with a prudent attitude to obtain a capital award of 30million yuan for information construction. However, if the current city really lacks informatization, I'm afraid we will be as inconvenient as the lack of electricity and tap water in life

isn't this a great informatization investment experiment? China's reform also crosses the river by feeling the stone. Informatization has created information resources that have been preserved for more than thousands of years in recent decades. Why should the unprecedented informatization construction not be allowed to fail? Cheap prudence cannot catch up with active adventure. At present, compared with developed countries, the application of informatization in China has fallen behind, especially in some core technologies and applications. If the pace of informatization in rural areas, agriculture and farmers is slow, how can we solve the "three rural" problems by relying on the existing backward productivity and production methods

in the information society, we need too much exploration, and exploration may fail. In the information construction without precedent, those investment failure cases are the cost we pay. Without all kinds of capital chasing Internet enterprises at the beginning, Internet will not have today's rational development; Without the joint promotion of government officials, experts and enterprise CEOs, the "driving" function of informatization will not be so obvious, and the dialectical relationship between informatization and industrialization will not be so clear

the great man Mao Zedong said that it is not terrible to make mistakes, but rather to make mistakes without knowing how to correct them. If in the era of using informatization like tap water, there is still "informatization consumption game", then it needs to be "seriously dealt with"

-- official perspective

Ji Jinkui, director of the informatization promotion department of the Ministry of information industry: the foundation of informatization of the national economy is enterprise informatization

enterprises are the cells of the national economy. The foundation of national economy informatization is enterprise informatization. Accelerating the pace of enterprise informatization construction is not only the key link to promote the informatization of the national economy, but also the basic work to implement the great strategy of using informatization to drive industrialization, accelerate the industrialization process, and realize the leap forward development of social productivity

informatization is a dynamic process and a gradual process, which cannot be achieved overnight. At present, under the specific national conditions that China's industrialization should continue and informatization should develop, informatization construction needs to explore while practicing. People's understanding of the connotation of informatization itself is also gradually evolving and deepening

the strategic significance of informatization is mainly reflected in two aspects: the first is the important embodiment of the scientific concept of development. At this stage, using information technology to drive industrialization and taking the road of new industrialization are the main ideas of economic development in China. According to the requirements of the scientific concept of development, economic development cannot be at the expense of the environment and excessive consumption of resources. The traditional way of industrialization has not only caused serious environmental pollution, but also low economic efficiency at the cost of a large consumption of resources, especially non renewable resources such as oil and coal. Grafting traditional industries through information technology can not only greatly reduce resource consumption, but also greatly improve the operating efficiency of enterprises and reduce social transaction costs

secondly, informatization is an effective means for China to achieve leapfrog development. China's informatization and industrialization are carried out simultaneously. Therefore, we cannot completely copy the way of developed countries. Industrialization first and then informatization. We must explore a way to integrate into the world trend while carrying out industrialization

for a period of time, the focus and task of the Ministry of information industry in promoting informatization are mainly three advances and one foundation. The three advances are: promoting industry informatization with enterprise informatization as the focus, promoting field informatization with rural informatization as the focus, and promoting social service informatization with urban informatization as the focus. One foundation is to do a good job in the basic work of informatization, including the construction of informatization laws and regulations, the formulation of technical standards and specifications, and informatization construction
