Facebook needed only 9 months to reach 100 million users. By comparison, it took 38 years for radio just to reach 50 million, 13 years for the television and just 4 years for Internet. Thanks to the Internet, YouTube offers each year the equivalent of 43 centuries of content.
New technologies have revolutionized our daily world, as well as the commercial or market relations. In connection with this change, patterns of consumption and purchasing have changed radically: companies should review their digital strategy and management of information systems in order to integrate this new channel of communication (by deploying multichannel strategies, SEO, affiliation, search marketing, viral marketing and e-CRM). The business model must at the same time evolve to take into account not only social networks (Douban, Orkut, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram ...) and mobile devices interconnected via the cloud (Smartphone, Tablets ...) but also issues of the legal dimension (privacy, digital footprints, security, privacy) as well as new financial structures (crowdfunding, etc.).
The ESG Management School launches a call for papers for the first day of research on topics related to digital business. Authors are invited to submit papers on both theoretical and practical aspects related to the digital business. These papers may include the following topics or any other they judge relevant:
