Enterprise Transformation is WPI's significant update of the existing technology infrastructure on campus. Once implemented, the project will dramatically improve processes and procedures across the university. 

This initiative will roll out over the next four years and touch every person on campus. Enterprise Transformation will improve the user experience for faculty, staff, and students while also providing the university with the cutting-edge security standards necessary at such a competitive, research-focused institution.
