Dig­i­tal econ­o­my: Goals, means, stake­hold­ers

Abstract. The paper artic­u­lates a goal of the dig­i­tal econ­o­my for mass play­ers, which con­sists in a rad­i­cal increase in the avail­abil­i­ty of eco­nom­ic effects through deploy­ment of dig­i­tal tech­nolo­gies and plat­form solu­tions. The author pro­pos­es an ecosys­tem approach as a means of reduc­ing leg­isla­tive and tech­no­log­i­cal risks of fail­ure in achiev­ing the goal. He demon­strates effects of dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion for stake­hold­ers on the exam­ple of ener­gy sec­tor, which is being re-shaped, par­al­lel­ing the inter­net, into a net­work of cells that encap­su­late gen­er­a­tion, con­sump­tion, and stor­age of resources.

Key­words: dig­i­tal econ­o­my, stake­hold­er, dig­i­tal plat­form ecosys­tem, inter­net of ener­gy
