This minitrack serves as a forum for the presentation and discussion of new and innovative approaches of business models beyond e-commerce for coping with the challenges of the digital economy as well as digital transformation. We consider an economy based on the digitization of information and the respective information and communication infrastructure as digital economy. This new type of economy implies not only technological, but also and especially structural and process-related challenges and potential. The way in which economic value is created will change fundamentally in the digital economy and thus transform the structure of economies and societies.
This evolution will radically alter processes and structures within and between businesses and further organizations including governmental authorities leading to the digital economy. New and innovative products and services are emerging, new infrastructures – market services as well as technological means – are enabling the digital economy.
All of these developments characterize the emerging digital economy and cause new challenges businesses as well as further organizations have to cope with. This clearly will have a major impact on how business models have to be designed. Therefore this minitrack addresses all topics concerned with the analysis, design, development, implementation, and control of future business models for the creation of economic value in the digital economy from a communication, organizational, business, economic, and managerial perspective applying a theoretical, conceptual, or practical approach.
