Management in View of Digital Transformation
The current level of maintaining and developing the effectiveness of process stakeholders has become a technologically demanding task involving ever-increasing costs. The belief that the upcoming digital transformation (DT) will represent a panacea is misguided since DT requires fundamental re-education and a restructuring of all process environments and human factors. Regardless of the business sector, DT is expected to accelerate as technology advances; new entrants and new forms of business partnerships change all the rules of the current stream.
These proceedings contain the papers of the 17th International Conference on Cognition and Exploratory Learning in the Digital Age (CELDA 2020), held virtually from 18 to 20 November 2020 and organized by the International Association for Development of the Information Society (IADIS). Due to an exceptional situation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year the conference was converted to a fully virtual conference.
The CELDA conference aims to address the main issues concerned with evolving learning processes and supporting pedagogies and applications in the digital age. There have been advances in both cognitive psychology and computing that have affected the educational arena. The convergence of these two disciplines is increasing at a fast pace and affecting academia and professional practice in many ways.
The article is devoted to the preparation for the digital transformation of the international air cargo terminal, carried out in order to increase the volume of air cargo and mail processed at the airport at the terminal complex. The process of digital transformation is a process of reengineering. It affects all the functional components of the company, without exception, and, first of all, management. It is important to determine in advance what threats the new management brings to the company, what competitive advantages the terminal can potentially gain as a result of digital transformation, what can serve as the basis for successful reengineering, and what management, technological, and technical issues need to be paid special attention to. The article discusses the technological and organizational aspects of the cargo airport, which can serve as a potential basis for successful transformation. The authors discuss in detail the new key business processes of digital service management at the terminal of companies in the Agency and forwarding environment. We consider options for building these processes based on the integration of services of the digital platform of the cargo terminal, the principles of implementing Omni-channel digital management of the processes of organizing air cargo transportation at an international airport
Digital business transformation is a priority for Russian companies in all industries. To develop a company to its full value in the digital environment, it should include an IT department capable of meeting business needs. Evaluation of the current state of the IT department in terms of digital transformation will determine the company’s potential for further development. This article presents a solution to the problem of assessing the IT department’s readiness for digital business transformation by developing a quantitative assessment of the maturity level of the IT department processes for meeting the needs of the enterprise. The approach to solving this problem consists in the joint use of models for assessing the digital maturity of the enterprise as a whole and models for assessing the maturity of the IT department processes and herein is the scientific novelty of the results obtained. At the first stage of the study, based on the analysis of modern information and digital management practices, as well as on the study of approaches to assessing the digital maturity of the enterprise and the processes of the IT department, INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGIES IN BUSINESS 64 BUSINESS INFORMATICS No. 2(44) – 2018 we developed the requirements for the IT department maturity model of digital business transformation. The study identified the prospects for IT departments that affect its maturity level, developed a model for quantifying each perspective and a model for calculating the minimum level of maturity of the IT department to achieve the expected assessment of the company’s digital maturity. To assess the willingness of IT departments to digitally transform business, a regression equation of IT department maturity level is constructed from the influencing prospects (factors). The results of approbation of the model are presented.
Digital transformation of organizations became a significant research and engineering challenge worldwide. In many cases digitalization requires extraction of tacit individual, interpersonal or organizational knowledge to explicit machine-readable forms and their conscious application during enterprise reengineering. Successful accomplishment of these tasks vitally relies on a rigorous scientific theory and formal methods. This work presents a new ontology modelling language and corresponding ontology patterns for comprehensive understanding of socio-technical systems, a new model-based approach to support transformation of semantics and syntax of evolvable domain-specific languages, and opportunities to fuse these results in order to support knowledge-based digital transformation of organizations.
The 11th International Conference on Theory and Practice of Electronic Governance (ICEGOV2018) took place in Galway, Republic of Ireland, between 4 and 6 April 2018. The conference was held under the high patronage of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform (DPER), Government of Ireland. The Insight Centre for Data Analytics, part of the National University of Ireland Galway, co-organised ICEGOV2018 with the United Nations University Operating Unit on Policy-Driven Electronic Governance (UNU-EGOV), which is also the conference series organiser1. The conference organisation was also supported by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and the Science Foundation Ireland (SFI).

This paper is devoted to the analysis of challenges and opportunities that emerge from the process of digital transformation in electric utilities. It presents a part of an ongoing study on asset management in electric utilities. Increasing demand for electricity and technological advancement are one of the main factors stimulating digital transformation both in developing and advanced economies. While digital transformation implies high costs and long-term investments, electric utilities can benefit significantly during this process. We propose a theoretical model of value creation in the process of digital transformation with the use of the Porter’s value chain framework. It turns out that generation, transmission and distribution, and retail companies seem to have opportunities to capture significant value form digitalization.
