ENSCHEDE, NETHERLANDS, and BOSTON, UNITED STATES, September 4, 2023
Bizzdesign has announced the acquisition of a majority stake in Edifit, an enterprise architecture software and consulting services provider. This strategic move aims to accelerate time-to-value and increase business impact for Bizzdesign’s customers, leveraging Edifit’s proven software suite and expert consulting capabilities.
United Kingdom-based Edifit has worked as a Bizzdesign partner in the vendor’s channel network for ten years, consistently delivering high-impact business value to customers. The seamless integration of Edifit’s software product suite with the Bizzdesign platform has been in high demand, offering enhanced control over governance and content publishing.
Edifit will become part of an enterprise architecture industry leader as Bizzdesign has repeatedly been used by analysts, including being named a 2022 Gartner® Magic Quadrant Leader for Enterprise Architecture Tools for the seventh consecutive time.
“We’re excited to welcome Edifit to the Bizzdesign family,” said Nick Reed, Chief Strategy Officer at Bizzdesign. “This acquisition opens new avenues for Bizzdesign’s growth, innovation, and customer success. With their exceptional product suite and consulting services, we’re expanding our offerings and can now deliver even greater value and innovation to our customers.”
Eddie Walker, CEO of Edifit, expressed his enthusiasm: “Joining Bizzdesign, a recognized leader in enterprise architecture, marks an exciting milestone for Edifit. By aligning our expertise with Bizzdesign’s leadership, we can collectively provide unparalleled solutions and services to our customers. We’re thrilled to be part of this journey with Bizzdesign.”
The acquisition of Edifit also brings top-tier enterprise architecture consulting and training capabilities to Bizzdesign, known for consistently delivering significant business outcomes to customers. Additionally, Edifit’s software add-ins extend the features of Bizzdesign Horizzon, allowing greater platform functionality.
The add-ins include Model Governance, which automates governance of model content; Model Publication, enabling automated publishing of high-quality, signature-ready documents and presentations; and Model Exchange, facilitating model management across multiple Bizzdesign Horizzon environments.
A majority stake in Bizzdesign was acquired in 2022 by Main Capital Partners, a software investor in the Benelux, DACH and the Nordics. As of October 2021, Main has over EUR 2.2 billion of assets under management and has invested in more than 130 software companies. Main works closely with its portfolio companies as a strategic partner to realize sustainable growth and build excellent software groups.
