Modern developed countries have engaged in active search for new sources of growth based on the development of scientific and technological potential emerging from new information, digital and industrial technologies. The development of these spheres is followed by a new technological revolution and a strong increase in productivity. Collectively, these changes are evaluated as a “new industrial revolution”. In this regard, the scientific understanding of organizational and methodological problems of forming a technological framework for the economic growth of the Russian economy in the global transformation of the world system of labor division under the influence of large-scale introduction of innovative technologies of the fourth industrial revolution will develop a paradigm and methodological tools for further introduction and successful implementation of digital economy focused on improving the efficiency of industrial production through the use of new technologies. The purpose of the article is to study the trends in formation, as well as to identify the problems of development of the digital economy in Russia amid scientific and technological changes associated with the transition to the fourth industrial revolution.
