It has provided a social platform which enables people to interact with an individual group of users anywhere in irrespective of time. It has assisted in various academic, non-academics as well as social activities which has made lives more various.

Digitalization could indeed be the best possible methodology to revive the Business, Education and Management practices all over the world would be useful to demonstrate innovative technologies and achievements in the field.
Digitalization already played a major role in public Education, Business, Finance, Marketing and Healthcare in wake of COVID 19 Pandemic. The scale, scope and power of digital transformation as evidenced by phenomena such as connectivity, platforms, algorithmic power, and big data is vigorous. The strong interconnectedness and interdependence between technologies and markets are key features of this transformation. In only a few months, the pandemic upended the daily lives of people around the world. Business, Marketing, Production, Education was among the sectors most affected as pedagogy went digital. Meaningful links between the digitalization of education and the economy, business leadership and national security was been observed.
Managers, Teachers, Leaders, Doctors, Entrepreneurs as well as the other specialists in different industries and spheres, admit that in the future, digital technologies will become increasingly important. That’s why it’s quite logical to presume that these processes will be more technology and capital intensive worldwide over time.
Today, more and more executives of companies and entrepreneurs have realized the need for changes in their business. It is useless to struggle with the concept of universal digitalization - it needs to be accepted and companies should understand how it can be built in. This is one of the most important directions that will help to make a new technological breakthrough in the world economy, while significantly reducing costs and optimizing production processes to preserve the environment, save human, money and time resources, and also improve the standard of living in general. Companies that do not start the digital transformation of their business today will be ineffective and will simply disappear under the pressure of new market realities and more pragmatic "digital" competitors of tomorrow. After a major global economic breakdown in 2020 due to pandemic, it was the digitalization in businesses that has helped us handling the difficult times.
