The Socio-Economic Impact Of Ivorian Refugees On The Fetentaa Host Community

ABSTRACT The rapid advances in digital technologies have led to the rising need for the development of strategies to harness its potential, especially in the field of Information Systems. Despite this growing importance, there is still a fuzzy understanding of what constitutes a comprehensive Digital Business Strategy (DBS) which encompasses the dominant dimensions of strategic actions in the digital economy. It is worthwhile to note that the digital business strategy transcends one functional area in businesses. In another breadth, most economic actors have difficulties in understanding the digital economy and are not always aware of the problems digital firms face. This difficulty has been attributed to the peculiarities of digital technologies and the specific characteristics of the digital economy. The above issues led to the conduct of this thesis which was guided by the critical realist paradigm to develop a theoretical digital business strategy framework which explains the value-creation strategic actions that underpin business models of digital enterprises in a developing economy. These include the four main dimensions of digital business strategy (Governance, Coordination, Competence and Flexibility). Based on this underpinning purpose and the gaps identified in existing research, the thesis sought to achieve three primary objectives. First, the study was set in motion through the conduct of a survey to explore the business models of the digital enterprises operating within Ghana’s digital economy. The findings suggest that among human, physical, and intangible assets, financial assets were the least utilized assets in the operations of the digital enterprises. This stems from the fact that the online financial business sector is still in its nascent stages in most developing economies. The findings further suggest that all digital enterprises leverage accessible and low-cost social networking services as part of their operations and use them as an avenue to engage with their target customers.
