Digital Business is the transformation of a company business generated by the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and, more in general, by Digital Innovation. It can involve the internal processes, (e.g. the supply chain management, market relationship management, etc.), but also the entire business model. Digital Business means also the transformation of entire industries and supply chains, the creation of new sectors (e.g. those of Apps, eCommerce, etc.) and of completely new companies (i.e. Startups). The objective of this course is twofold. First, it aims to provide the methodologies and tools to develop and assess Digital Innovation projects (in both existing and new companies/market). Second, it aims to create an arena in which students can apply the methodologies to real cases in different digital areas.
a) Understand context, functions, processes and performance (DdD1)
b) Identify trends, technologies and key methodologies in a specific domain (DdD2)
c)Design solutions applying a scientific and engineering approach (Analysis, Learning, Reasoning, and Modeling capability deriving from a solid and rigorous multidisciplinary background) to face problems and opportunities in a business and industrial environment (DdD3)
Risultati di apprendimento attesi

Modalità di valutazione
ASSESSMENT (5 CFU)
The assessment will be based on a written exam at the end of the course.
ASSESSMENT (10 CFU)
The evaluation of the digital business innovation LAB (10 credits) is based on the evaluation of the project. The project will be carried out in groups of 3-6 students. Students can propose a new digital business and develop a business plan or they can work on some real projects proposed by existing companies.
ASSESSMENT (15 CFU)
The assessment will be based on the weighted average of the written exam (1/3), and the evaluation of the project (2/3).
Written exam (5CFU)
The written exam will consist of open-ended questions covering all course content. Questions could refer to both theoretical concepts and short business cases (other than those discussed in class). Written exam grades range from 0 to 30 points. 18 is considered as the minimum threshold to pass the written exam. Students with a grade lower than 18 shall retake the written exam in any future call.
Project evaluation (10 CFU)
The evaluation will be based on three criteria: 1) Correctness in applying tools and methodologies; 2) Empirical Effort; 3) Usefulness for the company proposing the project or innovativeness of the new business idea proposed by students.
Overall Final Grade (15 CFU)
The overall final grade presented to the students will result from the weighted average of the Written Exam grade (1/3) and the project grade (2/3).
