Centre for Enablement

Build a self-service IT function that gets your business ahead of the curve

Centre for Enablement (C4E) is an IT operating model that enables an enterprise to build reusable assets, leverage best practices and knowledge to become a self service organisation. Instead of treating each IT challenge as an independent project, C4E introduces a continuous delivery framework, where assets generated during one phase become an integral part of every phase or project that follows.


  • Defined roles, responsibilities and ownership over platform and roadmap
  • Community around inherently collaborative and self-service way of working
  • C4E and API evangelism to promote assets reusability


  • Balanced deployment approach
  • Building up platform capability and C4E while delivering projects
  • C4E reduces project delivery effort (time, resources)
  • C4E accelerates time to delivery and time to market


  • Technology components are enabling a continuous delivery pipeline and multi-modal development
  • Constant feedback & iterative process


  • Tangible assets form building blocks that accelerate the delivery of new digital capabilities and innovation
  • Discoverable assets enable self-service and collaboration to increase the speed and consistency at which teams deliver new APIs.

Educate: enable asset-consumer to learn how to achieve a capability (in an optimal way)

Accelerate: increase asset-consumer productivity and adoption of best practice

Standardise: increase consistency of assets produced or processes followed; improve quality and familiarity for the asset-consumer
