We deliver research-led insights and strategies for the digital age.

Empirically-grounded research that drives practical approaches to digital transformation

Organisations increasingly rely on digital technologies to redefine themselves and their operating models. As they do so, broader questions emerge about the role this technology plays in transforming our workplaces and our lives.
Digital transformation requires that we look beyond the technology to the broader implications of the way we view the world, collaborate, and bring about change.
As a diverse group, Unities examines issues that cross traditional domain and discipline boundaries, and aligns academic, business, and public sector concerns.
At Unities, we offer new perspectives on the Digital Revolution and its impact on individuals, institutions and society.
