Closure of schools and offices, social distancing, and long quarantine days have created a demand for digital technologies. Online medical services, online education, online working, and non-contact services in several industries and some sectors became a mandatory need.

Therefore, the regeneration of business models is becoming an increasingly crucial factor for business sustainability.

The traditional ways of doing business have changed dramatically with the emergence of new digital technologies. A company can stay competitive using the benefits of digital technologies.
