Thursday, September 26th, 2013 - Roy Morgan Research

Roy Morgan Research today released the latest Digital Universe report, Australia’s most comprehensive examination of consumer and business attitudes, behaviours and trends.

The report is a panoramic perspective on the nation’s current digital position, viewed through the lens of:

  • The attitudes which drive the adoption and usage of technology
  • The infrastructure, hardware and software services that underpin this adoption
  • The increasing part technology and the internet play in Australians’ day to day lives

Understanding these three elements – attitudes, underlying technology, and usage – is a vital for businesses to assess the impacts of these digital trends today, tomorrow and in the future.


Tim Martin, Digital Director, Roy Morgan Research, says:

“Our research shows that different segments of the population adapt to new technologies at very different rates. For instance, infiltration into the mass market is only possible when certain attitudes prevail, which promotes adoption and comfort with technology.

“For example, concern about online privacy is on the rise, and two-thirds of Australians still don’t feel comfortable giving credit card details over the internet. 

“Another integral element is the technological infrastructure and availability and user-friendliness of hardware and software. The result is a fundamental change in the way people live, their priorities, behaviours and intentions.

“The Digital Universe report is an atlas for any B2B or consumer business impacted by the rapid changes in digital technology.”
