Digital solutions are sufficiently versatile and agile to shape business processes and enterprise architecture, answer the COVID-19 crisis, solve climate change, temper political conflict, generate new employment operating models, and solve health issues. These solutions benefit businesses as an integral part of the economy and society and therefore must be studied further to ensure they are utilized appropriately.

The Handbook of Research on Digitalization Solutions for Social and Economic Needs introduces the agile operating model that has triggered digital transformation and the plethora of ways it has become of practical use recently. The book also argues the business rationale of digitalization. Covering key topics such as innovation, sustainability, and business transformation, this major reference work is ideal for business owners, managers, computer scientists, industry professionals, researchers, scholars, academicians, librarians, policymakers, practitioners, educators, and students.
