Advancements in information and digital technologies are transforming how businesses operate, and consumers behave at a rapid pace. More recently, the Covid-19 pandemic has also given a glimpse of how e-commerce is likely to dominate our future. Therefore, marketing management as a discipline and a profession needs to embrace information and digital technologies as the future of business.
