Abstract: The paper presents different measures of digitalization provided by international organizations. Their annual reports are important tools for national specific policies and the countries try to improve their position in the rankings. The study emphasizes that even if the measures and indices structure are different, the relative position of the countries is almost the same. This conclusion is the result of a short analyse of the European Union countries digital performance in five rankings in 2017.
