Digital Transformation and Digital Economy
The world economy has been transforming from a traditional electronic economy towards a digital economy in the 21st century. This transformation process is called Digital Transformation using new digital business models empowered by new emerging digital technologies such as Analytics, AI, IIOT and Blockchain. The digital economy requires new digital skillsets based on knowledge and skills of digital technologies. Therefore, business leaders must acquire new digital skillsets to transform themselves to become digital leaders otherwise they will be irrelevant to the new digital market. Digital leaders will help to digitally transform their companies and organizations to become part of the digital economy. Companies and organizations, that fail to transform into the digital economy, will certainly disappear as Toys R us, Kodak, Blockbuster and Debenhams did.
