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.
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.
The leading enterprise architecture conference is going virtual!
EA Connect Day U.S. 2020, which had been scheduled to take place in Orlando, FL, will now take place digitally. This decision comes as a result of growing concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19) and keeping our speakers, attendees, and employees safe while supporting companies who have restricted employee travel. By holding the first of this year’s conferences virtually, more enterprise architecture professionals will be able to join from the comfort of their own space, learning and networking without interrupting business as usual.
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.
At LeanIX we regularly say that Enterprise Architecture programs are not able to succeed unless championed by the right people. The reason why is simple: all enterprises develop incredibly unique IT networks that can only truly be mapped by those with free access to equally specialized intelligence. And once (or, if) this information is made available, it must be qualified according to a company-based technical criteria before its contributions to the business as a whole can become interpreted within a dedicated system.
The 2019 LeanIX US EA Connect Day is over. Though a single-day event, we counted 60+ global attendees who joined eight varieties of sessions on using data-driven Enterprise Architecture to conduct digital business strategies. Of note, this conference served as an opportunity for LeanIX to formally introduce a number of our tool’s new/improved features—each one of which is briefly described in this blog post.
The premier summit for Enterprise Architecture.
How did giants of industry like Zalando and Hermes embrace digitalization so successfully? Why have companies like Vaillant and Norma Group excelled in managing complex yet agile operations while others failed?Is there truly a blueprint to winning the race to innovation —and if so, who holds it?
During our recent event in New York, Christian Richter, VP of Customer Success outlined steps for successful adoption of EA tools. With more than 50,000 users across 120+ customers, the LeanIX team has seen the ups and downs of EA tool deployment. With this foundational knowledge, Christian offered up a pragmatic 3-stage approach to speeding time to value with LeanIX.
In an earlier post, we teased a ServiceNow integration use case - well, the wait is over!
During his talk at EA Connect Day New York, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey Enterprise Solutions Architect, Kevin McKee, discussed the organization’s path to building a holistic technology catalog for use in developing canonical application architectures through a tightly integrated ITSM (ServiceNow) and EAM (LeanIX).
It’s like building the foundation for your home. When planning your enterprise architecture, a clear blueprint mapping the basic infrastructure of an organization can mean the difference between a chaotic mess or a beautiful support system.
Business capability maps provide a clear vision for future state of an organization’s applications, processes and business objects. But creating this map and understanding the impact of each capability is a daunting task, especially if your application landscape has not been well maintained over time.
