Engineering managers and DevOps teams require visibility into their public cloud footprint for actionable insights on hosting, technology, and costs. The more efficiently users can discover Public Cloud infrastructure data, the faster they can enrich the information on software artifacts and make informed business decisions.

What’s also important for productivity is seeing this information holistically on a microservice, team, and product level.

For reasons such as the above, we are happy to announce the Public Cloud integration for LeanIX Value Stream Management (VSM). The integration offers connections in VSM workspaces to Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud to help engineering teams leverage contextualized insights on virtual machines. This includes links to cloud accounts, underlying cloud services, instance tags and labels, and instance locations.

This present version of Public Cloud integration comprises only the first of many sets of features related to the VSM Public Cloud integration. In the future, we will add more Public Cloud resource types and features like the following to our integration:

  1. LeanIX VSM Public Cloud Integration: Virtual Machines - Available as of 15/11/2021
  2. LeanIX VSM Public Cloud Integration: Cloud Spend Extraction for insights on cloud costs - Roadmap
  3. LeanIX VSM Public Cloud Integration: Container Services (e.g., Azure Kubernetes Engine) to create a connection between software artifacts and containers - Roadmap
  4. LeanIX VSM Public Cloud Integration: Data Services (e.g., AWS S3, Google Cloud Big Query) to gain visibility on data objects, data governance, and static data infrastructure - Roadmap
  5. LeanIX VSM Public Cloud Integration: Low Code Services (e.g., AWS Lambda) to enrich software catalogs with low code objects - Roadmap

The Public Cloud integration extends users the following benefits:

  • Visibility into the context for your Public Cloud resources

value stream management public cloud

  • Visibility into ownership of Microservices and Cloud Accounts

value stream management faster

  • Simplified overviews of software deployments in non-sanctioned regions
