Abstract

Digitalization is one of the most fundamental drivers of change today, presenting a unique chance to shape the future. There is widespread recognition among the leaders of tourism industry that the role of digital technology is shifting rapidly from being a driver of marginal efficiency to an enabler of fundamental innovation and disruption. It is the major cause of large-scale and comprehensive transformations across multiple aspects of tourism and hospitality business, providing unparalleled opportunities for value creation and capture, while also representing a major source of risk. Business leaders across all sectors are coping with the strategic implications of these transformations of their organisations, industry network and society. The economic and societal implications of digitalisation initiatives are contested and raising serious interrogations on the wider impact of digital transformation. The present paper discusses the various sources and their significance in tourism and hospitality sector in universal and Tourism, Hotel and Aviation sectors in specific. Digital technology is transforming most industries and creating new challenges that need to be understood. These include factors such as the pace of change, cultural transformation, outdated regulation, identifying the skills needed for the future, overcoming shortcomings in legacy systems, and the need to fund both digital and physical infrastructure.
