Centre for Enterprise Architecture and Digital Design

Exploring the power of enterprise architecture in digital times

Enterprise architects and designers are reshaping businesses for the digital economy

Most organisations weren’t built for digital. Yet Big Tech, platforms, AI, blockchain, open APIs and new competitors and regulations are reshaping the way we operate.

Protecting and transforming the core of your organisation, while innovating to stay ahead, is increasingly challenging. Which is why digital business design is so important. The Centre for Enterprise Architecture and Digital Design helps you to reshape your organisation for agility, resilience – and successful transformation.
