The Digital Era is characterized by technology which increases the speed and breadth of knowledge turnover within the economy and society.

In areas which are relatively stable, knowledge turnover is low, and new variation, when produced, is rarely retained. In other words, less stable parts of the system, faster knowledge turnover is advantageous as new knowledge is produced more frequently allowing for adaptation to the changing surrounding environment. Mixing and matching rates of knowledge turnover makes for a dynamic but ever-lasting world.

The advent of the digital era has produced spectacular successes and colossal failures in the business world. Both of them provide lessons that must be learned, or guides to what does and does not work when a business adapts to digitalization

Digitization often lowers entry barriers, causing long-established boundaries between sectors to tumble. At the same time, the “plug and play” nature of digital assets causes value chains to disaggregate, creating openings for focused, fast-moving competitors. New market entrants often scale up rapidly at lower cost than legacy players can, and returns may grow rapidly as more customers join the network. Thus, Digitization is rewriting the rules of competition, with incumbent companies most at risk of being left behind. Going digital is the only option available to survive in the near future.
