Intelligent and Fuzzy Techniques: Digital acceleration and the new normal
Digital transformation plays a vital role in the sustainability of the organization and it is a long-term investment. As the world continues to fight the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic, the need for digital transformation has become more necessary than ever. While companies will undoubtedly face significant challenges in the digital transformation process, it has become a must for managers to accelerate the digital transformation of operations. The new normal is the state to which economies, societies, etc. settle following a crisis that is the coronavirus pandemic in our case. The post-COVID-19 era brought us to a new normal that will accelerate digital transformation in many areas such as digital economy, digital finance, digital government, digital health and digital education. To prepare for a digital “new normal” and maintain a leadership position among competitors, both manufacturing and service companies need to initiate a robust digital transformation. Digitizing an industrial company is a challenging process, which involves rethinking established structures, processes, and steering mechanisms. INFUS2022 aims to bring together the latest theoretical and practical intelligent and fuzzy studies on digital transformation, digital acceleration and the new normal, to present it to the participants and to create a discussion environment.
