In the knowledge economy, culture, sports, tourism and other entertainment-sector organisations play important roles in the digitalisation challenge. The digital revolution and Industry 4.0 require changes from these organisations to increase stakeholder engagement in decision-making processes. Current technological/quantitative approaches to information technology provide an insufficient understanding of implications, which require profound analysis of digital technologies' impact. IJDCET fills this gap, fostering dialogue over how such businesses can achieve integrated and renewed approaches emphasising content, context and sustainable business models.

- Corporate strategy, digital business models, decision making processes
