Digital Business Models

Digital business models refer to leveraging digital technologies to either transform or create new businesses, go-to-market approaches, and/or product and service combinations. This often results in a redefinition or reordering of the value chain and/or approach to the customer, thus altering or offering a new customer value proposition or new monetization path. At the CDS, we seek to understand the nature and type of these changes in model or approach and the role technology plays in enabling them.
