  5. 5. US and EU“The European information technology is almost irrelevant if youcompare it to the one in America.HP has a turnover of 89 billion euro,IBM 70 billion,Microsoft 44 billion.The biggest European is SAP with 12 billion.Sage and Dassault Systemes have each 1.6 billionand Software AG is number 4 with 1.1 billion.There is a gigantic gap between Europe and America in the importanttechnology from the future – IT” Karl-Heinz Streibich Chief executive officer Software AG

  7. 7. European High-Tech Industry becomes increasingly marginalizedThe high-tech industry in Europe is experiencing declining figures in all keysegments. European companies account for less than 10% of global sales of theworlds top-100 high-tech companies in the ICT sector.The education system must cater to an increase in qualified graduates in theso-called MINT disciplines (mathematics, information technology, naturalsciences, technology). To face declining population in WesternEurope, governments should also strategically recruit qualified professionalsfrom non-European countries.The national governments, E.U. institutions, European high-techcompanies, investors, and educational systems must act in concert.http://www.atkearney.com/news-media/
