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.
We have exciting news to share – LeanIX has a new look!
In the last few years, we have made tremendous progress as a company. We have welcomed hundreds of new customers around the globe, we have re-architected the underlying technology of LeanIX from scratch, and we have introduced countless exciting new features, integrations, add-ons, and premiered the LeanIX Store. And recently, we were proud to bring aboard our 100th employee to our fantastic team.

Only companies will persist that are able to react to dynamic changes in the market, and companies can only react when they are in control of their IT. The good news is: Even with a small budget, EAM is possible and will deliver concrete results.
Working with extensive data holds its own challenges. How can you retrieve the data you need out of the tons of available data. It gets even harder when you have to include logical connections between singular objects.
Looking at the management of IT portfolios, a good example are user groups that depend on a certain provider. IT is strongly debating how changes of providers are affecting the business. For our example we want to discuss the portfolio of an internationally working company. Here, user groups are national organizations, but you could also use business units or customer units.
