Digital Transformation is an iterative organizational process that includes both incremental and disruptive changes enabled by digital technology. It entails adapting a small business and its business model to new technologies and technological innovations in the sociotechnical environment. However, many SMEs, micro businesses, and sole proprietorships are unable to capitalize on digitalization due to limitations in the adoption of digital and smart technologies, as well as a lack of investment in appropriate knowledge-based assets.
