    Implement change successfully

    Structural change isn’t easy. Companies often lack the in-house skills to implement it successfully. The market offers very few – if any – of the profiles required. And if you have specialized employees such as Enterprise or Solution Architects, they might lack the support of hands-on training they need to fine-tune their skills.

    Open offering and tailored solutions

    The XPLUS Academy was founded in 2015 to grow your skills through training, a knowledge sharing platform, and mentoring. We have an open offering of trainings that is open to everyone, and we design custom-made solutions for clients to grow the maturity of architecture practices and individuals.
