A global standard, IEEE 2089(™) provides organizations a practical framework for designing processes for age appropriate digital services toward responsible technological innovation inclusive of children. Based on IEEE 2089, this newly released CWA describes a set of processes to help design and develop online products and services with the rights and well-being of children in mind.

The CWA helps organizations understand how their products and services affect children. Defined processes help to create system design approaches and software engineering methods to be age-appropriate or to check whether the digital product is age-appropriate. This is intended to enhance the benefits and reduce the risks in the digital world for young users up to the age of 18.

The new CWA published by CEN/CENELEC localizes IEEE 2089 within the European context, where it can address specific needs identified in various EU policies and regulations. This includes serving the new European strategy for a Better Internet for Kids (BIK+), which proposes safe, age appropriate digital services with every child in Europe protected, empowered, and respected online.

The processes in this CWA also address the EU’s Digital Services Act requirements for the protection of minors online, and can provide the basis for a new EU standard. In collaboration with IEEE, OVE (Austrian Electrotechnical Association), the 5Rights Foundation, Arizona State University, Istanbul Bilgi University, the Digital Opportunities Foundation, Eurochild and several international companies participated in the preparation of the CWA.

“The adoption of IEEE 2089 as the core of this new CEN/CENELEC Workshop Agreement represents a major advancement in the protection and empowerment of European children and youth online,” said Konstantinos Karachalios, Managing Director, IEEE SA. “The IEEE Standards Association appreciates the support and leadership of OVE in helping to make this happen.”

Economist Impact Research Finds 85% of Organizations’ Ability to Adapt Falls Short3.10.2023 15:00:00 CEST | Press release

Planview, a global leader in Portfolio and Value Stream Management, today announced the findings of a global study, “Bridging the gap: turning strategy into reality,” conducted by Economist Impact, the research arm of The Economist,and commissioned by Planview. The study uncovers common disconnects in strategy implementation leading to failures in critical digital initiatives. The findings show a stark reality: if businesses do not accelerate efforts to close the gap between strategy and action, the consequences are significant: wasted work, sunk costs, failed digital transformations, and the threat of becoming obsolete. “With economic uncertainties, market disruptions, the rapid advancement of technologies like AI, and the growing digitalization imperative impacting every industry, the pace of change and complexity of decision-making is growing exponentially. Organizations across the globe are experiencing the realities of ‘adapt, evolve, or die.’ Yet only 15% of executives are confid
