The Effects of Industrie 4.0 on e-commerce
Romanian Distribution Committee Magazine, 2021, vol. 12, issue 3, 49-172
This new research paper – “The Effects of Industrie 4.0 on e-commerce” – of 100 pages approaches the deep relationship between Industry 4.0 and e-commerce, which has become the major story of the growing global trade. E-commerce and m-commerce, digitalization, omnichannel and Standards in Industry 4.0 are placed under a magnifying glass, so as to provide a clearer picture of the impact of the disruptive technologies on increasing customer engagement in e-commerce, disruptive technologies being the biggest challenge along the e-commerce journey, and e-commerce being at that moment in which the average developmental trajectory is disrupted in a positive fashion. Disruptive technologies (as generators of effects) and e-commerce (as fertile ground for application) seem to be symbiotic by revealing new horizons of advancement, on a large scale, through the people - process – technology “triptych”, which with each opening gives a new exam to verify the extent to which the use of innovative goods and services’ design thinking in detecting customers’ real needs has led to the provision of solutions in relation to a necessary value expected by generations of consumers / users who are constantly learning and repositioning. Maybe that's why mobile apps, for example, are expected to become the next wave of e-commerce.
