Over 1,700 experts in the fields of enterprise architecture (EA) and IT management registered for LeanIX’s virtual EA Connect Day, held May 20, 2020. The conference marked the largest of its kind with attendees from all over the world coming together as a community to hear our featured speakers who spanned the globe.
Enterprise architects and solution architects at any level understand the importance of visualization. With businesses and their operating technologies moving faster than ever, taking a step back to better understand processes and data flows aids in revealing redundancies, mitigating risks, and identifying growth opportunities. It’s also an essential piece of the puzzle in communicating technical issues to non-technical business leaders. That’s why we’re so excited to bring architecture modeling capabilities to a whole new level.
The LeanIX-Apptio base integration — an out-of-the-box connector that links LeanIX’s EA Suite to Apptio’s IT Financial Management (ITFM) solution — was released today at the virtual U.S. EA Connect Day. Offering end-to-end transparency for precise understandings on the costs of IT architectural developments, the link between EA and ITFM supports a variety of use cases such as application rationalization and cloud transformation.
If you’re being interviewed for a position related to enterprise architecture (EA), you're likely interested in learning materials that can offer a competitive advantage or just improve your fundamental knowledge. Thankfully, LeanIX is staffed by experts in the field who know exactly what’s expected from EAs throughout industries, and our resource library offers free guides and white papers on a number of long-standing and emerging EA topics.
Business leaders don’t need another reminder about how seriously COVID-19 is disrupting global markets and their daily work. At LeanIX, we also know what’s at stake, and it’s our goal to make it easier for you and your co-workers to leverage the collaborative functionality of our tools to save costs and improve business continuity — just like what we’ve already done for Canada’s Yukon Government and hospitals across Europe.
We’ve all heard the old adage, “when the going gets tough, the tough get going.” However, during times as turbulent as these, it can be difficult for individuals to know where to begin. The COVID-19 pandemic has been an extreme challenge for all of humanity, business, and the global economy. In this blog, we will discuss how enterprise architects can play a small part in the resistance by supporting business continuity.
Enterprise architects can look forward to helping CFOs and CIOs better control IT spending and connect costs to data in IT landscapes. Through a technology partnership with Apptio, organizations will now have a direct and dynamic link between the LeanIX Enterprise Architecture Suite and Apptio’s IT Financial Management solution to enable stakeholders to make data-driven decisions about their IT investments.
The unusual times we’re in have called for unusual ways to keep a business running. With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing businesses to a standstill, the Government of Yukon turned to LeanIX to keep their services operational.
Last month, LeanIX announced it was taking EA Connect Day, the best-known peer-to-peer conference for Enterprise Architects, CIOs, and IT executives, virtual. Now, with less than one month until Virtual EA Connect Day, we’re thrilled to release the official lineup of speakers and their agenda of presentations.
Business capability modeling is an effective way to support application portfolio management and kick-start enterprise architecture programs. But as explained in the below video on the subject by LeanIX’s Director of Professional Services, Patrick Schober, there is a fine art to defining an organization’s key services and then documenting their supporting technology.
