Most of the problems connected with insufficient digital infrastructures in planning, which directly affects the financial results of companies. However, the authors found a solution to these problems. They proposed ways of digital transformation and specific services that will significantly increase the efficiency of any business. Financial management in the digital economy is one of Anastasia's main interests and the master's degree at UMTE gives her fundamental knowledges and skills that she applies in her professional and scientific activities. Anastasia is still studying but she has already been able to propose measures that can help the business move to a new stage of development.
