Centre of Expertise Digital Operations & Finance

Digital technology serving a sustainable economy
About

The role of technology in the business community and society continues to grow. Never before have we had so much data and computing power at our disposal. At the same time, we face a major challenge to make our economy ‘sustainable’, ecologically and socially. Linking physical and financial data streams in business processes can help us take that step.

The Centre of Expertise for Digital Operations & Finance researches how we can use data and digital technology for a sustainable economy. We study how processes could be organised better, how we can link data to them, and how we can gain insight into the effects of choices made by businesses. We research, build and experiment. This enables us to help organisations make the transition to a sustainable economy.
