Message from Dean, SBM - NMIMS

“ As we emerge out of one of the most trying times the world has seen in decades, there is a palpable sense of optimism and hope. A look at the recent past tells us that vulnerability is the birthplace of innovation and creativity. The COVID-19 shutdowns have undeniably led to instant pivoting of information technology groups, wherein technology-driven initiatives to enable remote work and distance learning was launched almost overnight. New customer experiences and new online sales channels followed close behind. These swift changes in technology have also prompted organizations to realign employees and customers to embrace new forms of business engagement and interaction. It would not be an exaggeration to say that digital adoption has taken a quantum leap at both the organizational and industry level. According to a McKinsey Global Survey of executives, companies have accelerated the digitization of customer and supply-chain interactions, as well as internal operations by three to four years. The share of digital or digitally enabled products in their portfolios has accelerated by a whopping seven years. This rapid transformation toward a digital economy has presented both challenges and opportunities. To remain relevant and competitive in the new business and economic environment, organizations need to adapt and transform their processes, structure, and strategies. All of these present exciting opportunities to examine the impact, directions, and emerging paradigms for both business professionals and management academics.

This three-day conference is aimed at providing a platform to present, educate, and discuss the digital transformation in the post-pandemic world. The forum will be a platform for researchers and academicians to integrate the diverse yet interconnected themes of digital transformations, emerging digital economy, and organizational resilience and adaptability. To encourage greater collaboration between policymakers and researchers and to catalyse the development of policy‐relevant research, the conference will facilitate a collaborative platform to identify research priorities in the domain and suggest emergent solutions. The discussions and interactions will also help the participants in understanding the nature and scope of challenges and opportunities in a digital economy with a broader perspective to create a roadmap for the future. The conference will also host an array of pre-conference workshops to support management scholars in improving and sharpening their skills to develop themselves as better researchers.

Conference theme: Digital Economy Post COVID-19 Era

The world witnessed the third industrial revolution in the 1970s and 1980s when industries transitioned from analog and mechanical devices to digital technologies. In the 1990s, the term ‘digital economy’ advocated the potential of internet connectivity for economic activities. In the 2010s, organizations across countries embraced digital transformations as the fourth industrial revolution aimed at bridging the physical and cyber worlds. Consequently, the digital economy gained more prominence by challenging conventional notions about how organizations are structured, businesses interact with their consumers, and goods, services, and information flow. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, digital transformations across industries have accelerated, wherein individuals have adopted technology-based solutions to facilitate their lives in unprecedented ways. Post-pandemic, digitalization continues to transform the lives of millions in multiple ways. While policymakers are promoting digitization, organizations are re-imagining the value propositions of their industry using technology in both B2B and B2C segments. In this context, INDAM 2023 invites discussions on the future directions of the digital economy in the post-pandemic era.
