The new volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous economic context generates the evolution of a global, integrated, and permanently connected world, in which territoriality and temporality have almost disappeared. Fluctuations and changes in economic power poles, past financial crises, but also signs of new recession periods, rising capital, multiplying variables, and cause-effect factors outline the current economic environment. Simultaneity and interconnection of Industrial Revolution 4.0, Globalization 4.0, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Data Revolution, and Digital Enterprise have determined the emergence of new concepts such as: Digital Ecosystems, Cyber counting, Cybersecurity, Platform Architecture for Financial, Digital Interface, concepts directly related to business performance in the new economic environment: Digital Economy.
Chapter Preview


The complete digitization of economic environment changes the way that leaders of the future relate with their business (McQuade, 2006; Yang, Wu, & Wang, 2014). Leading technologies, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Internet of Things (IoT) involve all the levels of the business, all the functions and all the stakeholders, transforming “the structures of economic interaction: the twin trends of digitization and virtualization are creating an economy of near-unlimited mobility in which cyberspace is home to all data” (Chen, Ge, & Xie, 2015), including indicators, accounting and global financial data. Reports, Charts, Technical Indicators, Trend Analysis, Research, Cloud Computing and Mobile Application, today all are interconnected, vertical integrated “creating smart systems that are not just analytical but also predictive and prescriptive” (Hiller, & Russel, 2013) in cross-country surveys with all stakeholders linked.
