The occurrence of crises in the capitalistic world is viewed as an opportunity for change and further progress. Indeed, capitalism implies that monetary value might be asserted in any situation, which is why catastrophes should be viewed as sources of developmental inspiration. Indeed, the latest events associated with the outbreak of COVID-19 have imposed significant restrictions on human interaction, business performance, and conventional economic processes.
However, these atrocities and challenges might be viewed from a beneficial perspective when applying the sociological perspectives introduced by Berman. The scholar argued that “catastrophes are transformed into lucrative opportunities for redevelopment and renewal.” From such a perspective, any crises produce opportunities for renewal and further development.
The redevelopment of the digital sphere has been significantly boosted by the outbreak of COVID-19 and its restricting implications for educational institutions. Since most colleges, schools, and universities have shifted to online learning, the use of digital platforms has risen significantly, triggering the redevelopment of the IT sphere and providing it with an opportunity to advance on a larger scale. Moreover, Berman stated that productivity emerges as the result of pressure. Indeed, the pressures of the circumstances of COVID-19 limitations have triggered additional effort in the representatives of the digital industry.
As a result, new approaches to solving tasks emerged and updated, and more efficient communication methods have been developed, thus transforming the world people live in. Ultimately, the redevelopment of the digital sphere implies the consecutive renewal of the whole world, which will now be more prominently dependent on the use of informational technologies and online platforms.
