Research on this topic should explore how organizations could reinvent themselves with new business models when they go through digital transformation to change all the internal and external aspects. When it comes to digital transformation, it is not just about products and technology. In a connected world, where most physical products are already commodities, and people can quickly search for competitors on the Internet, market advantage should come from changing the business model, adapting it to new digital clients demanding customized services rather than new physical products. This transition from physical product to digital service is very demanding: it requires new skills, value chains, and a customer-focused mindset. The suggested research would focus on these aspects of business model creation (using digital transformation) in varying contexts such as emerging markets, and traditional and new generation business models (such as models suiting the â€˜gig economyâ€™/â€™two-sided/multi-sided platformsâ€™).
