In today’s highly competitive business environments, with the rise of digital businesses and digital economy, digital strategies and organizational changes go hand in hand. Organizations that possess a robust digital strategy benefit greatly from the advancements of emerging digital technologies, and hence, making necessary organizational changes in order to maximise the benefits have become vital for their survival. According to MIT Sloan’s Center for Information Systems Research (CISR), “[i]n this period of digital disruption, businesses focused narrowly on value chains are at a disadvantage”. Next-generation enterprises need to think more broadly about their business ecosystems, leverage digitization to understand their customers better, and establish options for future success. Therefore, competitive businesses have started using a variety of digital tools including artificial intelligence, alongside other digital applications, making the required changes to their organizational models and cultures to better serve their customers efficiently and effectively.
