Today, Bizzdesign announces the acquisition of Edifit, an enterprise architecture software and consulting services provider. Edifit marks the first step in the international buy-and-build strategy of Bizzdesign since its management teamed up with the strategic software investor Main Capital Partners.

As a longstanding partner in Bizzdesign’s global partner and channel network, Edifit has consistently delivered high-impact business value to Bizzdesign 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.
Eddie Walker, Chief Executive Officer of Edifit, expressed his enthusiasm: “Joining Bizzdesign, a recognized leader in enterprise architecture, marks an exciting milestone for Edifit.
