MHP, a consultancy specializing in digital solutions for the mobility and manufacturing industry, has officially joined LeanIX’s ecosystem of partners. It’s a move poised to help both companies—each offering complementary solutions for aligning IT and business—extend collaborative forms of enterprise architecture management (EAM) to more organizations worldwide.
One look at the reviews for LeanIX on Gartner Peer Insights and we think it’s clear why the solution received a 2020 Customers' Choice distinction for the Enterprise Architecture Tools market. In particular, LeanIX received the highest overall rating of 4.8 out of 5 within this category.
It’s overwhelming — or is it paralyzing? — to think about what actually goes into product lifecycle management (PLM). As a methodology to support the upkeep of products and their data from design through to disposal, the practice of PLM demands incredible versatility and a firm grasp of nearly all moving pieces in an enterprise’s business and IT landscape. It’s about reducing risks and widening data sharing networks, synchronizing processes and creating workflow visibility — just about anything, really, to more intelligently manufacture and maintain lines of distributed products.

Cloud native is changing the ways enterprises work. On-premise workloads are not only lifted into the cloud but migrated to leverage the technology of hyperscalers or replaced by SaaS solutions completely. Simultaneously, the number of cloud native-born organizations continue to grow—but even these companies need to understand how to establish a smart IT governance. In both worlds, cloud architects and enterprise architects become more important on a daily basis.
It’s worth looking at the advice given in Forrester’s recently published Now Tech: Enterprise Architecture Management Suites, Q1 2020. Why? Forrester emphasizes that EA professionals are increasingly relying on enterprise architecture management suites (EAMSes) to accomplish six primary challenges: modeling, strategy translation, risk management, financial management, insights and change management.
Calculating the return on investment for implementing a software tool, or any application for that matter, can be a difficult exercise for enterprise architects. EAs haven’t had a way to easily quantify the value behind an enterprise architecture program which diminished the incentives for enterprises to invest and nurture an EA program.

Today LeanIX turns eight! It’s been a rollercoaster to get to this point, starting from a bootstrapped company of two founders to a global business with more than 180 employees on three continents.
Yesterday’s Enterprise Architecture is no longer enough for competitive digital businesses. Digital transformation enabled by cloud technology has emphatically disrupted what our profession does—or, at least, what we’ve spent the past decade thinking it did—and requires us to again explore and adopt new methodologies and tools to manage IT.
