Digital Businesses :

Digital business is the creation of new business models through combination of the digital and the physical work domain. It promises to usher in an unprecedented convergence of people, communication technologies, things and even thoughts that disrupts existing modes of doing the business leading to far-reaching impact on businesses, individuals, organizations and society. The disruption triggered by digital businesses is fluid and nonstop, with massive potential for innovation and destruction. Digital businesses are already changing the competitive outcome and IT landscape of many organizations.

In the Indian context the digital businesses are clearly in focus, seeing the emphasis of the central government on smart cities and digital India. We are entering an era where we can rightfully claim that "every business is digital business and digital business is everyone’s business." If we are to harness the benefits of demography, digitization and democracy, it is absolutely essential that we understand digital businesses.

Rationale of FDP :

The developments of internet of things, SMAC, big data, digitization, etc. in the technology space have triggered new ways of doing business. Start-ups, corporate, government and other organizations in the profit and non-profit sector are embracing digitization in a big way. These developments were initially led by the developments in the B2B space. However the current wave of adoption is created by the customer facing functions of organizations. This has created cascading effects across the value chain of the organization and is placing new, unforeseen and often radical demands internally on all functions of the organizations. The digitization of businesses is altering value perception and the way value is created. This has strategic implications for businesses and industries. The rules of competition are drastically altered.

For academicians to prepare human talent that is well-equipped to function, perform and lead in such a digitized world, it is imperative that they invest in their own capability building to evolve as well-informed, learned educators who are in sync with the digital reality and can adapt the management theory, tools and techniques to new realities. Currently, chunk of this learning is migrating from the industry to the academia as there does not exist a unified theory of management for digital businesses. This faculty development programme (FDP) is an attempt to address this gap.

Objectives of the FDP :
  • To contribute to the academic fraternity by offering contemporary and relevant knowledge about managerial and strategic aspects of digital businesses.
  • To provide an integrated view of digital business practices and challenges.
  • To highlight the process of change as a proactive response to disruptions.
  • To help participants become catalysts for impending changes in academic world.
