Abstract

Throughout the 1990s the Internet from being a highly specialized military network has emerged to become a global network, thus, information society has become a real thing, not some abstract notion. Today the process of informatization penetrates all fields of human activity and its dynamics is only growing. Therefore, informatization processes and current economic trends today are in some sort of complex, mutually predetermined relations. This concerns, first of all, the globalization of the world economy and the transnationalization of production processes, including the transformation of global distribution system. Informatization of the economy has changed and is changing not only the conditions of economic institutes’ functioning, but also their content and structure. These changes, already occurred and occurring today are the central object for our research here. The article studies the role of information technologies in today’s production. Cyberspace in this regard is considered here as the living environment for contemporary entrepreneurship. Mechanisms of its commercialization are analyzed along with the potential prospects of such commercialization.
