The concept of digitization is the use of information and digital technologies that lead to streamlining and improving processes in the areas of communication, information transfer, data availability and more. Considering the fact that nobody knows how the digital world will look like in the future, it is necessary for business entities to prepare themselves for anything to come so they will be able to react flexibly because it is obvious that the digital world affects and will affect every part of business management.
