Digital technologies widely deployed and used to process separate agendas generate extensive data and evoke or allow digital transformation of business models as well as the processes at the universities related to all part of kniwledge triangel. The focus on digital technology is different from other potential driving forces of transformation, such as political, social, cultural or economic shifts. The technologies and business models underlying the digital transformation at University are not fixed.

Currently, the most important element related to the digital business transformation is the following transformations:
