Description

Digital transformation (DT) emerges from the blending of personal and corporate IT environments. As a single, enmeshed reality, the fully integrated technologies strengthen social connectedness and promote face-to-face interaction and local community ties through social, mobile, analytics, cloud, and the Internet of Things. The Internet, digital technologies, and digital sensors shape the growing interconnectedness of people, organizations, and machines as the basis of the digital economy. However, the popularity of digital transformation research and the heterogeneous fields of application demand a consolidated overview of digital technology. Based on a literature review and a taxonomy-development approach, this paper presents a taxonomy of digital technology in the context of digital transformation: its characterisation, its roles/impacts, and the digital platform and ecosystem components. Overall, we aim to contribute to a better understanding of digital technology in digital transformation research.
