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.
We’re thrilled to be included in Built In Boston's 2020 list of 'Best Places to Work.' It’s an amazing way to start off the new year!
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.
LeanIX will release a new pricing model for its Enterprise Architecture Management and Cloud Native IT Management platforms on January 1, 2020. First announced at EA Connect Days 2019, the update provides use case-centric bundles to enable specific business needs faster and with less complexity. This change will only affect current LeanIX customers and contract renewals in 2022.
We don’t say this enough, but LeanIX’s global network of Certified Partners— 43 in total from 10 countries—is fundamental to our company’s growth. It’s the not-so-hidden secret behind how we deliver our cloud-native Enterprise Architecture solutions to the number of companies we do and contribute to so many digital transformations worldwide. Based on a combination of technology enablement (online certifications, full product access, etc.), sales enablement (proof-of-concept and demo support, sales workshops, etc.), and general partner enablement (access to an evolving resources library, a dedicated LeanIX Partner Manager, etc.), our partners are able to use our tools to their fullest—and in turn, so do their clients.
By all accounts, the 2019 LeanIX EA Connect Days was a success. With 450+ participants, 27 presentations, and 1000+ trees sponsored for planting in Nicaragua by LeanIX and its attendees, the international Enterprise Architecture community took full advantage of two days’ worth of knowledge sharing on IT and modern business strategies. Not to mention an opportunity for hands-on demonstrations of our company’s latest product releases: LeanIX Cloud Native Suite and LeanIX Smart Xplore™.
Detailed summaries and video recordings of each of the EACD presentations will be posted to the LeanIX blog in the coming weeks, but until then, here's just a small glimpse of what took place.
Coverage of LeanIX's EA Connect Days continues today with a follow-up on our company’s second major product announcements: LeanIX Smart Xplore™.
The 2019 LeanIX EA Connect Days kicked off today in grand style. After a keynote presentation on the “burnout epidemic” by Bruce Daisley, VP EMEA at Twitter and host of the Eat Sleep Work Repeat podcast, LeanIX CEO André Christ took the stage to share his company’s roadmap for the year ahead—a moment each of the event’s 450+ attendees had been anticipating.
Oddly, the arrival of LeanIX’s annual EA Connect Days has come to signal the beginning of the holiday season for many at the intersection of Business and IT. This is either because the conference always takes place at the very end of November (this year on the 26th and 27th) or since it is when LeanIX gifts the international Enterprise Architecture community with product updates and IT modernization strategies aplenty.
