      In the contemporary fast-changing business and consumer environment, traditional businesses experience a wide range of challenges and opportunities, coming from new digital technologies.

Professor Ann Vereecke and researchers Joachim Van den Bergh and Olga Varganova conducted the research in two phases. Through a survey to a large number of respondents, they have investigated the digital technology awareness and digital innovation practices present in companies that are active in the petrochemical supply chain. Secondly, they identified some best practices of digitisation in the petrochemical supply chain and present them as eleven short cases, eye-openers showing the value that can be created through digitisation and how to get it done.
    • Digital innovation in the Belgian insurance market

      Muylle, Steve; Standaert, Willem; Basu, Amit; Everaert, Edle; Decraene, Wim (Vlerick Business School, 2018)
      The insurance industry is changing, due to technology, market, and regulatory factors. Insurance products, processes, and business models are reshaped by rapid technological advances in big data, cloud computing, and Internet of Things. At the same time, consumers have become accustomed to the convenience, personalization, simplicity, and speed of interacting digitally via social media services and mobile applications offered by players such as Amazon, Airbnb, Facebook, Google and Uber. As a result, consumers increasingly expect insurance companies to offer digital services with compelling user interfaces and experiences. As to regulation, the financial services industry is preparing for the implementation of the General Data protection Regulation (GDPR; Effective in May 2018), which gives consumers the right to request their personal data to be made portable or completely and securily deleted. In response, leading insurance companies have started deploying an ecosystem perspective, partnering with firms in and out-side the insurance industry.
