There are no alternatives to digitisation and e-commerce – even for SMEs
Digital insiders forecast that all sectors will be subject to disruptive digital transformation in the medium to long term.

Following the example of digital disruption, 'online pure plays' undoubtedly offer the greatest potential growth dynamic: Lacking ballast or legacy burdens, they can grow at incredible speed. However, pure plays rarely meet the urgent need for digital transformation in traditional business areas, even in the SME segment.
