When Digital Boom Falls Down: Two Stratagems for Public Administration

2018 did not bring a significant breakthrough in the Russian digital economy development, the boom is being replaced by disappointment. Digital transformation as a process of cardinal change is gradually being superseded by numeralization or digitalization, that is, simply by converting “everything” into digital form. At the same time, practical issues concerning approaches of the state bodies to implementation of digital economy plans both in the nearest future and in the 5–10 years prospect, stay out of the attention zone. Of paramount importance becomes the discussion by the authorities not about the processes of effective changes in the economy, but the accelerated introduction of foreign digital technologies or provision of services on digital platforms. The article proposes to discuss two stratagems that will allow the government bodies of the Russian Federation to consolidate their leadership position in the digital transformation process, not only by implementing control and supervisory functions, but also through providing greater economic opportunities to large, medium and small businesses based on numeral.

Manufacturing Virtual Corporation in the Digital Transformation of Business

Active development of digital technologies contributes to nascency of new organizational and economic forms of enterprises and associations. However, new business models provide work with limited resources and tasks. The article outlines basic principles of industrial virtual corporations that ensure the use of heterogeneous resources for solving a wide range of dynamically changing business tasks. The authors demonstrate versatility of the proposed model, options and scenarios for its application. Possibility of using the concept of production virtual corporation for traditional companies, possessing many “non-digital” assets, as an innovative form of management is considered.

Choosing Singularity

The article continues the cycle of works dedicated to the social system transition into a new qualitative state — from zoopopulation to psychosocial formation, where the moral-ethical characteristics of people will be the factor determining its further development and functioning. The authors postulate that “singularity” like a “vertical” on a well-known graph of the phase transitions distribution of A.D. Panov is attributable not only to biological and technical development of civilization — “technical singularity”, how it seems to ideologists of transhumanism, but namely to “moral singularity”. Moral and ethical properties, “worked out” by mankind in the course of historical process, have an even higher level of complexity than technical ones, therefore they are the leading factor in the further systemogenetic development of our space-time continuum. Aspiration of the transhumanism ideologists to represent singularity as a result of purely technical progress is an attempt to camouflage due to various information campaigns the destructive “concept”, which somehow manifests itself in the continuum of nonspecific activity results — in destruction of social structures and stagnation of social processes, in blocking the begun phase transition (moral singularity).
