This chapter focuses on the IT policies of the Dutch and European governments in the period from 1960 to 1980. The success of different government policies and instruments is evaluated against the background of the development of the life cycles of computer technologies. The evolution of Dutch company, Philips Electronics Ltd, is discussed, which was the biggest company involved in IT hardware in the Netherlands during that time, and succeeded best in profiting from government policies.
