Global Digital Business Society was formed by a group of academicians to advance understanding among academicians and practitioners about digital business issues, which is often referred to as E-Business, E-Commerce, or online business. The primary mission of the Society is to bring the people from all over the world together in order to bridge the gap between development and use of digital technologies.  This mission can only be accomplished through sharing of ideas, education and knowledge development, sharing of research and engaging in joint research.
