The Digital Transformation (DT) concerns the adoption of digital technology to sell products and services by replacing traditional channels and processes with digital ones. The DT has taken multiple forms in the last years and the recent Covid-19 pandemic also acted as an accelerator for the online business activities.

The DT can be approached in an ad-hoc manner thinking in terms of isolated lakes that can be digitalized without global approach and/or central coordination. Digitalization initiatives can nevertheless also be approached in a more systematic manner and with the use of conceptual models. Lots of challenges need to be addressed before the DT can be approached in such a way.

The workshop’s scientific output has the willingness to sustain the research in model-based approaches to the DT to include a broader range of aspects (e.g., not only technical but also social and organizational) in the study of the DT. From the technical perspective, the workshop can offer genuine approaches and models supporting academics in the study of the DT and professionals in approaching and conducting the DT. Conceptual, technical, application-oriented and case study contributions are welcomed within the themes of the workshop.

Workshop proceedings will be published at CEUR-WS.org
